The numbers behind U.S. military aid to Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with President Obama on Monday and a big item on the agenda was a discussion about a new ten year military package for Israel. It’s been reported that Israel would ask for an increase in aid, from 3 billion to 5 billion. We’ll take a look at how military aid has been spent until now with William Hartung. He is the director of the Arms & Security Project at the Center for International Policy and author of Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex.
