The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies' International Center for Terrorism Studies presented a lunchtime panel discussion, Iran's Nuclear Program: A Final Warning?, on Tuesday, December 6, from 12 noon-2pm.  The program examined ways in which the Iranian challenge to the international community is expanding daily.  Panelists explored explore whether Tehran, under new diplomatic and economic pressures, will finally relinquish its nuclear ambitions before a doomsday scenario occurs, as well as the short- and long-term outlook including WMD ambiguities, sanctions’ impact, “covert war” against Iran, and regional and global “unintended consequences.”  Click below to watch video of the event in full.
