Andrew Bacevich on US Foreign Policy

An excellent interview by Bill Moyers with retired Colonel Andrew Bacevich:

“Bacevich […] identifies three major problems facing our democracy: the crises of economy, government and militarism, and calls for a redefinition of the American way of life.”

Covers the failure of the Dems to get us out of Iraq, the current one-party US government (in the sense that both Dems and Republicans are alike), and “supporting” the troops.  Calls for a lighter, smaller foreign policy.

Superb commentary.  Watch both parts or read the transcript.
