The folly of attacking Iran

Stephen Kinzer, former New York Times foreign correspondent, is in Philadeplhia on a tour to promote his book “The Folly of Attacking Iran”. Philly Mag interviews Kinzer ahead of his talk,

As a staff reporter, I was not able to beat my spoon on the highchair. That’s one of the reasons I left the New York Times. … I wanted to be sure if the United States got involved in a military confrontation with a country I knew something about, I would be free to speak about it. I do not want to wake up and hear that missiles are falling on Iran and think that “You didn’t do anything to prevent this.” link
