Michael Parenti, a progressive political analyst, joined us this morning for a good look at what’s going on in the Middle East, specifically Iran. He took us back in history for a lesson on Saddam Hussein showing us exactly who put him in power and how he fell out of good graces with the U.S., thus becoming the bad boy. The American Empire and Geo-Politics.
