THE HOUR/WASHINGTON POST -- Zarif — and his accomplishments — are a product of the strange relationship between the United States and Iran that has been the backdrop of his adult life.

Zarif is a graduate of San Francisco State University. That is my parents’ alma mater; they met there in the 1960s, long before there was any tension between Tehran and Washington. Zarif received his bachelor’s degree in 1981. He later went on to get a law degree at the University of Denver.
