"The mushroom cloud": Is the unthinkable really possible? Could al Qaeda construct and detonate a nuclear bomb? How close are we to a nuclear Iran, and what does that mean for the current nonproliferation regime? What should the next administration do about it? Join our guests Ambassador Wendy Sherman, recently appointed by Congressional Leadership to serve on the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism, and Dr. Ray Takeyh of the Council on Foreign Relations as they separate myth from reality. Ambassador Sherman will discuss the scope of the threats and what the next president needs to do to protect our security. Dr. Ray Takeyh will explore the challenges of Iran as a case study.
