Greenwald vs. Huffington on Israel/Iran



I hope this kind of debate is becoming the norm on US television -- here Greenwald rebuts the scaremongering of hosts (look at MSNBC's name for the story: "Iran defiant but dangerous") and guests like Arianna Huffington who prefer to focus on the threats of Iran rather than the actions of other countries around the region. The bottom line should is that Iran's actions, while deplorable at home and often questionable abroad, are not as bad as many other countries in the region (and Israel in particular.) I also like that Greenwald calls out Obama's lies about Iran.
