Liberadio(!) Daily: Let Bartlet be Barlett

Summary: Award-winning journalist, Don Barlett joins us to discuss his latest piece of investigative journalism. In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, Barlett, along with his partner, Jim Steele, investigate Science Applications International Corporation’s unsettling record as one of the government’s largest contractors. The piece, called “Washington’s $8 Billion Shadow,” includes such gems as “…more than 90 percent of all taxpayers might as well remit everything they owe directly to SAIC or some other contractor rather than to the IRS,” and, SAIC “epitomizes something beyond Eisenhower’s worst nightmare—the “military-industrial-counterterrorism complex.”‘ And Mary only called him Don Bartlet once! Good times.
