During the last Presidential debate, President Clinton boasted that there was less than one percent difference in the defense budget he proposed and the one advocated by Republicans. Defense has clearly been kept off the table in this presidential election year and our next guest WILLIAM HARTUNG thinks he knows why.

William Hartung is with the World Policy Institute which has just released a report on Arms Exporters and political contributions.
