SmartHER With Behnam Ben
Two months after the death of a young woman in government custody, Iran remains aflame with protests. The best information available points to hundreds dead and thousands under arrest as those in power attempt to secure their positions through brutal force and violence; an individual detained in connection to the demonstrations (that the government calls “riots” ignited by the West) was just sentenced to death. Will this set the precedent for mass executions? What’s next?
Senior Fellow for nonpartisan think tank, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, Behnam Ben Taleblu, joins us with what to watch, why it matters and how Iran fits into a modern “axis of evil.”
