5/17/19 Mashal Hashem and James Allen on the American Firms Lobbying for Death in Yemen

by | May 20, 2019 | Interviews

Mashal Hashem and James Allen, research associates with the Center for International Policy, join Scott to discuss their work on the congressional lobbying by American arms manufacturers. Last year the U.S. sold more than $4.5 billion of weapons to Saudi Arabia alone, and American firms donated thousands of dollars to the people behind those decisions. Lobbying by the likes of Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman create a perverse political incentive to start and continue wars.
