Strange Bedfellows: Glenn Greenwald on How Bipartisanship Prolongs the Forever Wars
The United States has been mired in endless war for more than a generation. This week, journalist Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept sits down with the Eurasia Group Institute for Global Affairs’ Mark Hannah to discuss the true costs of America’s militarized foreign policy. Are journalists so used to reporting on the polarization of the American electorate that they miss the close collaboration between Democrats and Republicans in Congress to pursue pro-war policies? Ultimately, Glenn argues, “the policies that both parties endorse, a posture of endless war, of militarism, of aggression, of blind support for Israel, not only are amoral, but are actually contrary to the interest of the American people.”
