Is the Costly Iraq War Endangering US Safety at Home?

Hosted by

One of America's major financiers says that spending on the war in Iraq could make America more vulnerable, rather than safer. Robert Hormats is Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs International. His new book, The Price of Liberty: Paying for America's Wars, argues that President Bush is ignoring George Washington, who warned against passing the cost of war onto future generations. He also sites Dwight Eisenhower, who said, "The problem with defense spending is to figure how far you should go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without."
