By putting Iran “on notice,” the new U.S. administration is laying the groundwork for a more confrontational approach toward the Islamic Republic.

A U.S. luxury tour company is offering a new destination that’s sure to raise eyebrows: Iran. Those at Abercrombie & Kent say the tour is perfectly timed as Iran is opening up after the nuclear deal with world powers.

Administration officials had refused to discuss the details of how the money — owed to Iran from a deposit on a decades-old weapons sale that was never consummated — was turned over to Iran.
