BILL MOYERS JOURNAL | Jeremy Scahill on Politics and the Price of War | PBS

Duration: 18:10

From a billion dollars sought for embassies in Pakistan and Afghanistan to May's highest casualties for U.S. forces in Iraq since September, the wars abroad are taking their toll on the nation. Bill Moyers sits down with award-winning investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill to examine the human and financial costs of America's wars. Scahill is author of the best-selling book Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army . Also, from headlines surrounding the healthcare debate to media frenzy over Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, NPR's "On the Media" host Brooke Gladstone and NYU journalism professor and PressThink blogger Jay Rosen sort the messages and spin from the week's news.
