Ex-MI6 agent: Iran doesn’t need settlement with Biden’s US, can look to Russia & China! (E954)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to former MI6 agent Alastair Crooke CMG. He discusses the reported meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ahead of Donald Trump’s departure from the presidency of the United States, what the objectives of the meeting were, Israel and Saudi Arabia’s objective of putting Iran at the top of Joe Biden’s foreign policy agenda, why Joe Biden, Israel and Saudi Arabia are likely to have major differences on policy towards the Islamic Republic, why Biden is already asking too much from Tehran, why Iran doesn’t need a settlement with the US as ties with Russia and China grow deeper, and much more!

Finally, we speak to Alexander Nanau, director of ‘Collective’, a film highlighting the work of investigative journalists to uncover major healthcare fraud and corruption in Romania. The film starts with the Colectiv night club fire in 2015 in which 64 people lost their lives, explores the major healthcare crisis in Romania and the lack of improvement for decades, and eventually uncovers a corruption scandal that rocked the entire nation.
