Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
John Shuck speaks with University of Pittsburgh Law Professor, Daniel Kovalik about the war drums beating against Iran. We discuss his myth-dispelling book about Iran, "The Plot to Attack Iran: How the CIA and the Deep State Have Conspired to Vilify Iran."

He is also the author of "The Plot to Scapegoat Russia: How the CIA and the Deep State Have Conspired to Vilify Russia," and "The Plot to Control the World: How the U.S. Spent Billions to Change the Outcome of Elections Around the World."

The world has a lot of questions about the current state of affairs between the United States and Iran

*How has the US undermined democracy in Iran?
*Is Iran really trying to develop nuclear weapons?
*How has US waged a terror campaign against Iran for years?
*How is it that the US and Israel, rather than Iran, are destabilizing the Middle East?
*How has Iran helped the US in the war on terror?

Using recently declassified documents and memos, as well as first-hand experience of the country, critically-acclaimed author Dan Kovalik will change the way you think about Iran, and especially what you think of US interference there. Learn how the United States vilifies its enemies, and accuses them of unspeakable horror to mask its own terrible crimes. Not only does the illuminating and important The Plot to Attack Iran delve into the current incendiary situation, but it also predicts what could happen next, and what needs to be done before it is too late.
