Should the US Defense Department really be run by someone whose company makes huge profits from war? Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof joins Rick Sanchez to share his insights on this new low in an era of naked cronyism. He argues that Shanahan “lacks strategic vision” and “only has a corporate mind.”
