This week, as we prepare for the release of Going to Tehran: Why the United States Must Come to Terms with the Islamic Republic of Iran, we are pleased to be featured on Andrew Sullivan’s The Dish—or, more specifically, on The Dish’s “Ask Anything” video series. As The Dish’s editors note, “During the Iranian uprising of 2009, the Dish continuously clashed with Flynt and Hillary Mann Leverett, the most well-known skeptics of the Green Movement.” Given that history, we are grateful to Andrew Sullivan and his colleagues for reaching out to us at this critical time in America’s ongoing debate about how to deal with the Islamic Republic.
Following its usual practice, The Dish polled its readers to come up with a set of questions for us. So click here or on the embedded video above to see the first installment of “Ask the Leveretts Anything.” This one deals with our view of “the Ahmadinejad regime.”
