Former State Department senior adviser Haroon Ullah joins the Hive to talk about his recent piece on the information war for control in Iran. He discusses the Iranian regime's strategy in dealing with protesters and what potential impact it may have. Ullah also talks about whether Iran's problems may spill out elsewhere in the Middle East.
Ullah describes the current unrest in Iran, where thousands of anti-government protesters have recently taken to the streets.
He discusses how the Iranian regime is playing the long game in its battles with protesters. However, he believes access to social media has created a force among the people that the Ayatollah may not be able to contain.
