These wars have not advanced America’s strategic or economic interests and have been disastrous for the people being bombed.

Before the Department of Defense receives billions in additional taxpayer dollars, Congress should make sure that it has a plan to more efficiently spend the resources it is already receiving.

Many of the cases have only entered the public discussion recently, while some represent problems that have persisted for years... Read More »
