United States to sell attack helicopters to Indonesia

U.S. Department of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced that the United States would sell eight Apache attack helicopters to the Indonesian army, a $500 million deal that could strengthen U.S.-Indonesian military relations. Human rights activists, however, vehemently oppose the deal. Edmund McWilliams, a retired U.S. Senior Foreign Service Officer, joins us to discuss the implications of this deal for military relations and human rights. (Photo: AP Images).
