What are the roots and ramifications of escalating tensions between Washington and Tehran? Is Washington goading Iran into conflict or is Iran inciting the United States? Host Carol Castiel talks with Ambassador Gerald Feierstein, former U.S. Ambassador to Yemen, now Vice President at the Middle East Institute (MEI), and Nicholas Heras, Senior Fellow in the Middle East Security Program at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), about the dangers of miscalculation and prospects for a diplomatic off-ramp leading to negotiations rather than confrontation.
