In an interview with "The Hard Line" host Ed Berliner on Monday, Gen. Shelton, who served from 1997 to 2001 as Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman and is author of "Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior," says Washington has "got to support" the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) "if we want them to be able to move forward."
