Iran Scan 1384 Debate

16 June 2005

Three great contributors go head-to-head with one another in Iran Scan this week. The first post is spurred by the arrival of actor-come-journalist Sean Penn in Tehran and ends in poignant analysis of America’s relationship to Iran. This is followed by a critique of the political romance between Iranians and neoconservatives, and finally a sharp interjection rejecting any preconceived notions about Iranians, the American Left, or the neocons.
