Antiwar Radio: John Glaser

John Glaser, editorial assistant at The American Conservative magazine, discusses his article “The American Deep State,” about Eli Lake’s New Republic article “Enemy of the State: Are we at war with Pakistan’s intelligence service;” how Lake’s premise equally applies to the unelected US military-industrial complex that exerts enormous political influence and pursues a policy agenda contrary to national interests; the low-grade war already going on in Pakistan; and the three and four-star officers who almost universally find post-retirement work as lobbyists or consultants with defense contractors.
