Taking on Iran
The interview, part of Book TV’s college series, was recorded at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University on April 23, 2013.
Abraham Sofaer talked about his book, Taking on Iran, in which he argues that the U.S. should stand up to Iran by directly confronting the country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps and its surrogates, which he says have attacked the U.S. and Israel with impunity for the past 30 years. This show of strength, he argued, will do more to get Iran to the bargaining table than will threats to bomb the country and its nuclear facilities.
