This week's Agenda with Marcus Mabry and Jonathan Marcus

Iran's election and how the U.S. should react

Monday, June 15, 2009

It's a week full of foreign news: disarray continuing in Iran following the country's hotly contested presidential election; the world reacts to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Mideast peace plan; and U.S. Middle East Envoy George Mitchell is in Syria. On the domestic front, President Obama and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner are expected to lay out regulation reforms. The Takeaway is joined by Marcus Mabry, International Business Editor for The New York Times, and Jonathan Marcus, Diplomatic Correspondent for the BBC.

"The ball, to some extent, will be in President Obama's court, but he cannot serve that ball until, obviously, the situation in Tehran becomes clearer."
