Exposing of America’s largest military contractor, Lockheed Martin.

Host Per Fagereng speaks with William Hartung, Director of the Arms and Security Initiative at the New America Foundation.

They'll discuss William Hartung's new book, Prophets of War, an exposé of America’s largest military contractor, Lockheed Martin. When President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his famous warning about the dangers of the military industrial complex, he never would have dreamed that a company could accumulate the kind of power and influence now wielded by this behemoth company.

As a full-service weapons maker, Lockheed Martin receives over $25 billion per year in Pentagon contracts. From aircraft and munitions, to the abysmal Star Wars missile defense program, to the spy satellites that the NSA has used to monitor Americans’ phone calls without their knowledge, Lockheed Martin’s reaches into all areas of US defense and American life. William Hartung’s meticulously researched history follows the company’s meteoric growth and explains how this arms industry giant has shaped US foreign policy for decades.

William Hartung will be speaking and signing books at Powell's Books, 7:30PM, Friday 1/14
1005 W. Burnside, Portland, OR 97209
