By Betsy Rothstein Comment

ABC “This Week” host Christiane Amanpour is getting noticed for being a “distinguished” and “accomplished” Iranian American. On Sept. 18, the Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans is honoring her along with a small group of notableĀ  Iranian Americans, including Anousheh Ansari, the first Iranian woman in space, and Nazanin Boniadi, an actress who appeared in “Charlie Wilson’s War” and on the ABC soap “General Hospital.”

The hosts of the event, being held at GWU’s Lisner Auditorium, are Iranian American comedian Maz Jobrani, and former CNN anchor Rudi Bakhtiar.
