Documentary Description

Protests, crackdowns, international sanctions. Iran is under pressure from
inside and out. We look at the looming economic crisis and the state of dissent in the Islamic republic. We'll see how both are weakening the power of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. And we talk about the controversy surrounding U.S. support for so-called
democracy promotion programs in Iran.
