Robert talks with Richard Murphy, an assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs who served from 1983 to 1989. He also served as ambassador to Saudi Arabia and Syria. He is currently a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. Murphy just returned from a trip to the Middle East, where he spoke with many high-level Arab officials about Iraq. He and Robert discuss the deal brokered by U-N Secretary General Kofi Annan this weekend, and what it all means for the United States and its interests in the Persian Gulf region.
