2/22/12: Israel and Iran - A Dangerous Rivalry

Salt Lake City, UT – It's difficult to remember a time when Israel and Iran weren't always about to go to war, but political analysts Dalia Dassa Kaye and Alireza Nader say the two countries were once informally allied, bound by their shared enemies. The downfall of Saddam Hussein's regime, Iran's quest for nuclear capabilities and the ongoing Arab Spring have helped sunder the alliance. Doug talks with Kaye and Nader on Wednesday about Israel and Iran's relationship and how they arrived at the brink of war.
