Roya Hakakian: The Turquoise Palace

Tonight on Secure Freedom Radio: For a special treat today, Iranian-American journalist, Roya Hakakian shares the microphone with Frank to talk Iran. In her book, “Assassins of the Turquoise Palace,” Hakakian tells the story of the 1992 Mykonos restaurant assassination of Kurdish opposition leaders in Berlin. These killings sparked the largest investigation and prosecution in Germany since World War I. How does this assassination parallel the recent plot uncovered by the FBI to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador in the United States? Has Iran now developed the ability to assassinate in countries such as the US where it previously had no room to operate? If so, what will come next for the country dedicated to killing those who they label “enemies of Islam?”
