    Al Qaeda and Iran: Threats to the Security of California

    Bay Area - East Bay Friday - January 18, 2008     01:30 PM

    Iranian-American Community of Northern California Presents

    Professor Raymond Tanter
    discussion on

    Al Qaeda and Iran:
    Threats to the Security of California

    Hilton Garden Inn San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge,
    Platinum Room
    1800 Powell Street, Emeryville, California 94608
    on
    Friday, 18 January 2008, 1:30 PM


    On Friday, 18 January 2008, the Iranian-American Community of Northern
    California has invited Professor Raymond Tanter, former member of the White House National
    Security Council Staff and current President, Iran Policy Committee, to discuss terrorist threats
    to California.

    California's ports comprise the largest entry point for U.S. imports. Because of the size of
    California's ports and the inability to screen all cargo, particularly the large number of containers
    that enter the Port of Oakland, the Bay area remains a vulnerable target for al Qaeda.

    Iran, due to its ability to disrupt the flow of oil from the Persian Gulf, also poses a threat to the
    economic security of California. In 2006, approximately 38% of the oil entering West Coast
    ports originated in the Persian Gulf. Iran continues aggressive actions in the Strait of Hormuz,
    taking hostage 15 British sailors in March 2007 and harassing U.S. Naval vessels with
    speedboats in January 2008. These actions caused spikes in the price of oil and Iran maintains
    the capability to cause longer term elevations in the price of oil by disrupting naval traffic.

    At issue is whether Washington, without fear of retribution, would dare exercise effective
    leverage against Tehran to coerce it from disrupting the flow of oil in the Strait of Hormuz. Prof.
    Tanter will discuss how the United States can employ its latent leverage to deter Iranian
    aggression and how the democratic Iranian opposition can reinforce sanctions against Iran.
