باراک اوباما در دور اول ریاست جمهوری اش به محض شروع، سیاست تازه ای در قبال ایران در پیش گرفت ولی مدتی بعد از تلاش برای تماس، به سمت وضع تحریم های گسترده علیه ایران تغییر مسیر داد. اکنون که او دوباره به ریاست جمهوری انتخاب شده، تقریبا مشخص است که وی به مسیر قبلی اش در قبال ایران ادامه خواهد داد. ولی آیا ایران می توانست از فرصت اوباما استفاده بهتری کند؟
