World oil prices are soaring after an audacious attack on two critical Saudi oil fields. Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels claim they’re behind the strikes, but the U.S. asserts Iran is solely responsible, while Saudi Arabia itself says “all practical evidence” shows Iranian weapons were used. Vali Nasr and John Kirby join the program to break down what all this means for U.S.-Iran relations.
