After Words: William Hartung, "Prophets of War," hosted by Pierre Sprey

About the Program

In "Prophets of War," William Hartung presents the history of the largest military contractor in U.S. history, Lockheed Martin.  Mr. Hartung argues that with 25 billion dollars annually in Defense Department contracts, Lockheed Martin's reach into American life is extensive and largely unknown, including creation of satellites used to spy on the phone calls of American citizens.  He discusses the company's size, scope and influence with Pierre Sprey, father of the A-10 and F-16 military aircraft.
