Ex-CIA Operative Discusses 'The Devil We Know'
In his new book, The Devil We Know, former CIA operative Robert Baer argues that Iran is an up-and-coming — and often misunderstood — superpower, with strong influences throughout the Middle East.
"The sooner we understand the Iranian paradox — who they are, what they want, how they want to both humble us and work with us — the sooner we'll understand how to come to terms with the new Iranian superpower," writes Baer.
Baer's previous book, See No Evil, was the basis for the George Clooney film Syriana.
