KGNU's Claudia Cragg talks here with Melvin Goodman, a 24-year veteran of the CIA, who according to his publishers, City Lights, brings peerless authority to his argument that U.S. military spending is indeed making Americans poorer and less secure, whil undermining its political standing in the world.

Drawing from his first-hand experience with war planners and intelligence strategists, Goodman offers an insider's critique of the U.S. military economy from President Eisenhower's farewell warning to Obama's expansion of the military's power.He outlines a much needed vision for how to alter our military policy, practices and spending in order to better position the U.S. globally and enhance prosperity and security at home.
