Reese Erlich talked about his book The Iran Agenda: The Real Story of U.S. Policy and the Middle East Crisis, published by Polipoint Press. Mr. Erlich argued that Iran does not present a threat to the U.S. and should not be attacked. He said that many of the people pushing for war with Iraq are doing so for reasons that have little to do with U.S. national security. Mr. Erlich showed slides from trips to Iran, including one with Sean Penn. He responded to questions from members of the audience at this Brown Bag Talk of the Columbia University Middle East Institute at the School of International and Public Affairs.
Reece Erlich, producer of the documentary The Struggle for Iran, is the co-author of Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn’t Tell You. His written work has appeared in Mother Jones, the Dallas Morning News, the Chicago Tribune, and other sources. close
