Meetup Description: author and journalist Robert Scheer in person
(Patriots Question 9/11, Gaping Holes in the 9/11 Narrative)

Scheer examines the quiet expansion of our military presence throughout the world, our insane nuclear strategy, the immorality of corporations profiting in Iraq, and the arrogance of our foreign policy. His view echoes that of former Republican president General Dwight Eisenhower, who, in his farewell speech to the American people, spoke prophetically about need to guard against the growing influence of the military-industrial complex. In George W. Bush's America, politicians like Ike and Richard Nixon seem like prudent centrists.

The views of libertarians, liberals, and pacifists are too often overlooked or ignored by America's mainstream media. For the past year we have heard our presidential candidates split hairs over how to allocate a fraction of our national budget to education and health care programs while billions of dollars in discretionary defense spending remains shrouded in mystery.

It is our hope that this blistering indictment of the military industrial complex will finally change the terms of the debate. At a time when many are exploiting fears of terrorist attacks and only a few national leaders are willing to advocate cuts in defense spending, nuclear disarmament, and restrained use of American force, Robert Scheer has written a manifesto for enlightened reform.
