Matt Kibbe is joined by Scott Horton, editorial director of Anti-War.com, to talk about why peace is such a difficult sell in Washington, D.C.

Part of the reason for this is a military-industrial complex dating back to World War II, with strong incentives to keep growing the military forever. In a sense, it no longer matters what the American people want or how they vote, because Congress answers to a higher authority—the Pentagon.
