Obama’s mistake in Afghanistan

April 1, 2009 | By | Reply More

Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA), appearing on Amy Goodman’s DemocracyNow, discusses President Obama’s mistake in attempting to escalate the American military presence in Afghanistan.    A leading advocate for a single-payer healthcare system and a physician, McDermott also discusses the “medical-Industrial complex,” which he considers to be bigger than the “military-industrial complex.”

Finally, McDermott discusses the danger that someday, in light of the collapses of many newspapers, there might not be meaningful investigative journalism sufficient to sustain our democracy.
