- Program Description
President Bush says Iran is part of an `axis of evil'-states that are developing weapons of mass destruction and supporting terrorism-and many Americans would agree. They haven't forgotten the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979, or Iran's support for Lebanese groups like Hezbollah during the 1980s, when U.S. embassies and military bases in the Middle East were attacked, killing hundreds. But times have changed and the playing field has shifted, creating a dilemma for U.S. policymakers. Iran helped in the war against the Taliban and seems willing to help bring down a common enemy-Saddam Hussein-but it's also developing nuclear weapons and is bent on Israel's destruction. As the war on terrorism advances, how will America handle Iran? And will U.S. actions help or hinder Iranian moderates in their struggle for reform against Iran's hard-line religious leaders? FRONTLINE goes inside today's Iran to see how the game will be played. Correspondent: Linden MacIntyre.
