Andrew Bacevich talks about his new article for tomdispatch.com, “The National Security Void”. During the first presidential debate, Donald Trump’s answer regarding the concept of first use of nuclear weapons revealed lack of depth of knowledge on the issue. Hillary Clinton’s answer was equally unrevealing, and didn’t answer the question directly. Bacevich talks about Hilary Clinton’s static thinking regarding nuclear weapons, despite her mastery of binders full of wars. Do we need the trillion dollar modernization of the nuclear triad that the Obama administration wants? Does Hillary have a Cold War mindset, a post Cold War mindset, or both simultaneously? Jump into the hypocrisy with another great interview on the Scott Horton Show.
