Last week, Flynt Leverett joined us to talk about the potential for an attack on Iran. Simply put, he believes that strikes are imminent. We'll get another view today, from David Frum. He is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research and a senior policy adviser to Rudy Giuliani. During President Bush's first term, Frum worked in the White House as a speech writer. He does not believe that the Bush administration plans to strike Iran soon. "No, alas," he writes on his blog today. In March, in the National Post, he suggested some alternatives to war.

Our hope is to continue these conversations, about Iran, with experts from across the political spectrum, in the future. If you heard Leverett last week, did your opinion change? What questions do you have from Frum? And feel free to suggest other experts with whom we could talk!
