Tom Engelhardt: The Costs of Defense

Since 9/11, author Tom Engelhardt estimates, perhaps twenty-five to thirty people in the United States have been killed by terrorism—far less than the number of deaths by homicide, or smoking, or car accidents. In this video, Engelhardt, a fellow at the Nation Institute, explains how the fear of terrorism dominates the US national security complex, at a heavy cost.
