The link here is to a 59 minute interview on KGNU `Hemispheres’ program hosted by Jim Nelson with guest commentators Ibrahim Kazerooni and Rob Prince. I consider it one of our better programs. We’ve been doing these programs on Middle East developments with Jim Nelson for three years now. This one deals mostly with the Obama Administration’s change of direction towards Syria. Several weeks ago, by all appearances, the United States was on the verge of bombing Syria, punishing it for allegedly having used chemical weapons (serin gas) against its own people on August 21, 2013 resulting in the deaths of 1400 people. The Syrian government denied the charge , the Obama Administration, despite much bluster and `assurances’ that it had the proof, never provided it. In any case, suddenly a change of course with what could be the beginnings of a negotiating process possibly in the making. American hawks, Joe Lieberman, John McCain, AIPAC types having something approaching apoplexy that the bombing did not take place.
