On June 21, Just World Books CEO Helena Cobban had a fascinating 40-minute discussion with Amb. Chas W. Freeman, Jr., author of the recently published book America's Continuing Misadventures in the Middle East. In the conversation, Freeman discussed the recently-reported letter that 51 currently serving junior and mid-level diplomats signed onto, in which they called for tougher action against Syria's President Assad; Russia's role in Syria; the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement for Palestinian rights-- and much more.
