America's Wars And What Sustains Them

Although President Trump says he abruptly called off military strikes on Iran last month, American troops are involved in conflicts around the world. In this edition of Update-1, National Press Club member Mike Hempen talks with Emily Manna, a policy analyst for Open the Government, a nonpartisan coalition that believes in a stronger democracy and a more open, accountable, and responsive government. They discuss America's hidden wars, what keeps them going and how public knowledge of what is happening on the battlefield has waned.
