According to Rachel Maddow, it has become all too easy to go to war. In Drift, the MSNBC television host and political commentator argues that the decision-making process of the American military has become dangerously divorced from the democratic process. Declaring war, as she told an interviewer, should be "an awkward and calamitous process. It should be a big mess." Instead, intervention has become easy and escalation, an almost predictable eventuality. Perpetuating the situation is the increasing presence and leverage of contractors, most notably Halliburton. Drift addresses questions that are certain to be central to U.S. foreign policy in the coming years. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
