A $ Trillion Here, a $ Trillion There
Winslow Wheeler, director of the Straus Military Reform Project, engaged with Michael O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institution, Linda Bilmes of Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government and Robert Hormats of Goldman Sachs to discuss the costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the economic impact here at home and the absence of ethical, forthright leadership from anyone in the executive branch of government or Congress to confront the disturbing issues. The discussion occurred on National Public Radio’s The Diane Rehm Show on Tuesday, March 4, 2008.
