On a day that felt like it was dominated by headlines about Gina Haspel, Michael Cohen, and American hostages being freed from North Korea, Al-Monitor Diplomatic Correspondent and Just Security editorial board member Laura Rozen joined me to circle back to yesterday’s extremely important news that the Trump administration is abandoning the Iran nuclear deal.  For years, Rozen has covered efforts to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons. I asked her to weigh in on Europe’s reaction to the news that the U.S. was abandoning the deal, Tehran’s reaction, the likelihood that the deal can succeed without Washington’s involvement, and what the news means for the Middle East.
