Released American Hikers Say Iranian Guards Used Gitmo, CIA Prisons To Justify Poor Prison TreatmentThe Iranian government last week released Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer, two Americans who had been held there on false spying allegations since 2009, from prison, and in their first chance to speak to the media, Bauer and Fattal detailed the human rights violations they had experienced at the hands of the Iranian government. Among those violations were poor prison conditions and long periods of time spent in isolation, complaints similar to those filed by the lawyers of prisoners at American prisons controlled by the military and Central Intelligence Agency. According to Bauer and Fattal, Iranian prison guards repeatedly used the harsh conditions of Guantanamo Bay and CIA prisons around the world to justify their own human rights violations: BAUER: In prison, every time we complained about our conditions, the guards would immediately remind us of comparable conditions at Guantanamo Bay.

Jean-Pierre Perrin - Sans l'assistance de l'Iran, le Hamas comme le Hezbollah ne seraient pas devenus ce qu'ils sont. Les tragiques événements du Proche-Orient confirment ce diagnostic. D'où ma première question : selon vous, Barack Obama modifiera-t-il ce qu'était, sous George W. Bush, la politique iranienne des États-Unis ? Robert Baer - Regardez le discours de Barack Obama devant l'American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) (1) : il a été clairement inspiré, guidé même, par Israël. Aux États-Unis, vous ne pouvez pas parvenir au pouvoir en défendant une politique étrangère indépendante pour le Moyen-Orient, une politique qui ne soit pas filtrée par l'AIPAC.

The US president has said that Turkey can play an "important" role in persuading Iran to engage in dialogue over its nuclear programme. Barack Obama said on Monday after meeting Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish prime minister, that he had stressed the importance of resolving Iran's nuclear capacity "in a way that allows Iran to pursue peaceful nuclear energy, but provides assurances that it will abide by international rules and norms". "I believe that Turkey can be an important player in trying to move Iran in that direction," Obama said, referring to international norms and regulations governing atomic energy. Erdogan told Obama that Ankara was prepared to play the role of "mediator", but he has criticised the West for being too quick to censure Iran for its nuclear programme. The US and the other countries negotiating with Iran are concerned Tehran is secretly using its nuclear programme as a cover to develop atomic weapons, a charge Iran denies.

Michael Eisenstadt The overthrow of Saddam Hussein’s regime provided Iran with a historic opportunity to transform its traditional Iraqi enemy into a partner or ally. A long, porous border and extensive political, economic, religious and cultural ties provide Iran the potential for significant influence in Iraq. Iranian attempts to wield this influence, however, have often backfired, leading to a nationalist backlash by Iraqis and tensions with the Iraqi government.
