video debate on Iran by Reza Aslan and Eli Lake

posted by Aziz Poonawalla

Bloggingheads has posted a debate between Reza Aslan and Eli Lake on the Green Revolution that was quite informative. I am embedding the debate below, it’s amazing how much more informative a video debate can be sometimes than just reading op-eds, the dynamic of the back-and-forth tends to mirror the viewer’s own thoughts. Take a look:

Aslan just came out with a new book, too: How to Win a Cosmic War, whch has been getting a lot of buzz recently. It’s on my to-read list.

    For the record, Reza Aslan also did a Bloggingheads specifically about his new “Cosmic War” book a few weeks back.
