Middle East expert Dr. Constantine Menges will be Joseph Farah’s guest today on his nationally syndicated radio talk show to discuss what he calls Iran’s secret war against the U.S.

Menges, an expert on Iran and radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, says Tehran is the driving force behind the Muslim leader’s movement, providing funding and recruiting of tens of thousands of political operatives and armed militants in Iraq.

“Iran is working covertly with al-Sadr to use political means, threats and murder to eliminate enemies, intimidate local leaders and take over control of the Shiite leadership in Iraq,” contends Menges.

Menges notes Iran dominates radio and television broadcasting in Iraq, controlling 41 of 63 AM/FM/TV broadcasts heard in the country.

The analyst is currently director of the Program on Transitions to Democracy at the Hudson Institute and has served as special assistant to the president for national security affairs as well as national intelligence officer with the CIA.
