Col. Lawrence Wilkerson Pentagon contractors driving U.S. foreign policy? Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa

Lawrence Wilkerson, retired U.S. Army colonel and former chief of staff to U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, was on a speaking tour with AFSC's GUI project in Iowa to educate first-in-the-nation caucus goers about the excessive political influence from private weapons manufacturers in the decision making process.

Governor Jindal was asked about his policies if elected for president would be in the interest of the public good instead of corporate interest. Governor Jindal stated "...I think we need to stop members of Congress from becoming lobbyists...I think too often they do what the special interest want. In regards to military procurement... multiple sources, having competitive bid contracts, multi year procurement...I think its good for taxpayers and it's good for men and women in the military as well because when we don't do that they are also the ones getting cheated. They are not getting the equipment and the training they need and it shouldn't be done based on politics."

Bobby Jindal $1 trillion nuclear weapons question Des Moines, Iowa 10-29-15
I asked Gov. Bobby Jindal about the $1 trillion plan on a new generation of nuclear weapons and how to limit the military-industrial complex from setting our nuclear priorities. Although he supports increasing military spending, “I think right now there is too much influence in Congress, and Congress won’t like giving up that power. Because you’re right, a lot of them get donations, or they’re trying to protect pork barrel project in districts.”
