Ed Krayewski Talks Mitt Romney's Defense Spending Plans with Abby Martin on RT America


Mitt Romney's kind of weird call for even more defense spending was at the top of the news on RT America yesterday and I joined Abby Martin in the 5pm news hour to talk about it. It was my first cable news television appearance since calling George W. Bush's foreign policy ripped out of a comic book at a college panel on MSNBC Dayside just before the Iraq War started. As an aside, I always remember the maps I saw at the studio back then, which marked the locations of Saddam Hussein's nuclear, chemical and biological stockpiles in Iraq. Anyway, here I am on RT yesterday, with some supplemental reading below: 

Why increased defense spending hasn't stimulated the economy, and even with a land war wouldn't

Some Tea Party Republicans backing defense spending cuts

Why Mitt Romney would fit well as President Obama's Secretary of State

Why real cuts would be good for defense

Reason on defense spending
