Peter Green Lecture on the Modern Middle East with author and freelance journalist Reese Erlich, who just returned from covering Iran's parliamentary elections for VICE News. Read his article on the Iranian elections, 'It's a Punch in the Face to Trump': Why Soleimani's Killing Could Mean Hard-Line Victories in Iran's Elections.'
The U.S. assassination of Iranian General Soleimani sent shockwaves through the Middle East. Over a million Iranians commemorated his death, and tens of thousands of Iraqis demanded withdrawal of U.S. troops from their country. The U.S. and Iran came close to war. Peabody award winning freelance foreign correspondent Reese Erlich, who has reported from Iran since 2000, will offer his first hand observations on the current crisis and how U.S. foreign policy must change.
