Inside the Military-Industrial Complex

James Harris and Josh Scheer

James Harris: This is Truthdig.  James Harris here again with Josh Scheer.  Today we are talking to Philip Coyle, he’s the former assistant secretary of defense, and currently is a senior adviser at the Center for Defense Information.  Recently an article was published announcing that UC Berkeley had won a contract to develop defense, a contract worth some $1.6 billion each year.  In doing the research for this interview, I found that there was no cap to the trillions of dollars spent on defense.  Seeing these astronomic figures, I cannot help but think about the forgotten social programs, the failing education structure.  Can you tell me, what do we spend this money on?  Where does it go? And are we spending too much?
