Exploring the complexities of the American-Iranian relationship in the wake of Sept. 11 and President Bush's inclusion of Iran in what he called an “Axis of Evil” in his State of the Union address.

Joseph Biden (D-Del.), who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee; former CIA chief James Woolsey; and journalist Elaine Sciolino.
