Here’s an excerpt from her bio on the Bellermine website:

 Abigail Hall’s work focuses on topics surrounding the U.S. military and national defense policy. She has worked on issues including domestic police militarization, drug policy, arms sales and weapons policy, and economics of unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) warfare. Her coauthored book, Tyranny Comes Home: The Domestic Fate of U.S. Militarism was published by Stanford University Press in 2018.

This episode is part one in what will eventually be at least a three part series on the problems with nation building and trying to export democracy to countries that are not interested in it. We dive into the deplorable situation that is unfolding there and the errors of nation building that brought us here. Buckle up. You may not agree with everything we say in this episode, but I guarantee you, it will make you think.
