This week in New World Notes, radio program #194, November 22, 2011

Andrew Bacevich

In brief

Retired Colonel--now Professor--Bacevich (pronounced BAY-se-vitch) critiques the US's policy of constant military intervention everywhere. This broadcast includes a recent article by Bacevich ("Is America Coming to Its Senses?")--which is cautiously optimistic--and selections from a recorded interview.

Bacevich is the author of five books on US foreign and national-security policy. The most recent is Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War (2010).
