Early this morning, unable to sleep, I watched this video broadcast on our local community television. Aaron Glantz is the author of How America Lost Iraq (2005), and the subject of this talk is his latest book, The War Comes Home: Washington's Battle Against America's Veterans (2009). This lecture was sponsored by the Walter H. Capps Center for the Study of Ethics, Religion and Public Life at the University of Califiornia, Santa Barbara. Please view the podcast, but in any case, consider the book absolutely essential reading, part of one's myriad civic obligations.
