10/10/18 Patrick Martin on the Military Wing of the Democratic Party

Scott interviews Patrick Martin on his new article series, “The CIA Democrats,” in which he outlines the disturbing trend of dozens of former military commanders, State Department war planners, and outright CIA, FBI, and Military Intelligence agents seeking nomination from the Democratic Party in congressional elections. Their victories would create a strong pro-war faction within the party, since by Martin’s reckoning, only a single one of these candidates has come out with an anti-war position. In some cases it may even technically be illegal for these men and women to seek political office. Unfortunately, Martin explains, most American liberals actually think President Trump isn’t hostile enough to foreign countries, citing his ‘willingness to cozy up to dictators’ in the form of peace talks and aversion to war.

Discussed on the show:

Patrick Martin is the senior national political writer for the World Socialist Web Site, where he is the author of numerous articles.
