Andrew Bacevich

Military Andrew Bacevichhistorian Andrew Bacevich says that for the past two and  a half decades, America has been waging one war in the greater Middle East — a war with ever-shifting fronts, a war that creates enemies as fast as it defeats them, a war that is ultimately doomed. He joins us live in-studio. But first: How a power struggle in Sacramento over regulating e-cigarettes could make it impossible for for an unrelated tax measure to get to the ballot this year — we talk to investigative journalist Nicholas Kusnetz about why the tobacco industry spends the more political money here than in every other state combined.
