9/21/18 William Hartung on the Military-Industrial Complex and Yemen

by | Sep 25, 2018 | Interviews | 2 comments

William Hartung joins Scott to talk about the reasons for the war in Yemen and its effects in the region. As usual, little attention is being paid to America’s role in supporting Saudi Arabia in waging the war, and even less to the role of powerful lobbying from arms manufacturers, though efforts from some journalists and certain members of congress are looking to change that.

Discussed on the show:

William Hartung is director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy, and the author of Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex. Find him on Twitter @WilliamHartung.
