NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Has the United States been in the Middle East these last few decades to defeat terrorism or to protect our access to the world’s oil supply? Do Americans unwittingly help fund terrorists every time we fill up our cars with gas?
And why is becoming oil-independent not just good for the environment but vital for our national security? These are some of the questions raised in the provocative book written by our guest on INSIDE POLITICS this week.
He’s Greg Ballard. He is a retired Marine Lt. Colonel and the former Mayor of Indianapolis. His book is entitled LESS OIL OR MORE CASKETS: THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGRUMENT FOR MOVING AWAY FROM OIL.
Tune in for a very interesting discussion.
