Trita Parsi was keynote speaker at our September 29 symposium, Shifting Iran-US Relations. He is the author of Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran, and the Triumph of Diplomacy and president of the National Iranian American Council.
On November 30, he wrote an article with Pennsylvania Representative Ryan Costello titled Cotton, Pompeo And Trump Are A Recipe For War With Iran in the Huffington Post.
“The New York Times and Washington Post have now confirmed what the National Interest reported last week: Trump is planning to oust Rex Tillerson and replace him with Mike Pompeo while giving Pompeo’s CIA Director job to uber hawk Sen. Tom Cotton. If Trump does his neoconization of his administration, the prospects of the Iran Nuclear Deal surviving will plummet and the risk of war with Iran will increased massively.” – Trita Parsi
