Amb. Robert Jordan on #Iran & who could play the bad cop in the Mideast
Amb. Robert Jordan, former US Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, weighed in on the P5+1 deal with Iran and quoted President Reagan by saying we should “trust but verify.” However, he amended the quote by saying he doesn’t know if he would even go as far as to trust! On Israel and Saudi Arabia collaborating, Jordan said, “It is certainly possible that they could be collaborating with each other on what kind of strategy to employ. Either to stop this interim agreement or to take action on their own part.” He added, “It doesn’t hurt us to have a good cop, bad cop environment so that we can say to the Iranians ‘If you don’t play ball with us, watch out because there’s some really bad actors out there who would like to do away with you!’”
