CPT Wade Ishimoto, USA (Ret), was part of a panel hosted by the National Iranian American Council on to discuss U.S. - Iran relations in light of the new documentary film Desert One.

"When Iranian students seized the U.S. Embassy on November 4th, 1979, they changed the course of U.S.-Iran relations and U.S. foreign policy for decades to come. In the documentary film, Desert One, some of that history is reconstructed and we get a detailed look at the harrowing tale of Operation Eagle Claw—a covert operation ordered by then U.S. president, Jimmy Carter, to rescue 52 Americans...[A] fascinating discussion with the film's director, award winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple, Ambassador John Limbert who was among the 52 Americans held in Tehran, and Captain Ishimoto who served as an intelligence officer for Operation Eagle Claw."
