Program Segments

Hour A, Segment 1

A kinder, gentler Iran? An interview with Amb. John Bolton

A special report on what critics call the new Iranian president’s “charm offensive” to fend off Western sanctions and pressure while continuing to pursue nuclear weapons.

Kent Covington is a senior correspondent for The World and Everything in It. He spoke with the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, who said: “We’ve got 10 years of evidence, 10 years of negotiations by the United States, either directly or indirectly through the Europeans. And I think the pattern that Iran follows is very clear. … They use negotiations as a tactic to gain both legitimacy and to buy time for them to make progress toward their objective.”
