US Military and Egyptian Politics

The United States has given billion dollars of military aid to Egypt over the last decades. Lockheed Martin, Boeing and General Electric have provided tanks, missiles, engines and more to the Hosni Mubarak regime. Following the massive popular uprising, U.S. foreign aid continues to flow to Egypt, although the Obama administration has placed the program under review. Democracy Now! speaks with William Hartung, author of "Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex" and Samer Shehata, assistant professor of Arab Politics at Georgetown University.
