Allen West: Another neocon down for the count.

Allen West is unable to answer simple questions about defense strategy and spending. He doesn't know what would happen if somebody attacked Russia. He doesn't know what would happen if somebody attacked us. He can't explain why we have to spend 12 times as much as any other country on defense spending. Watch this link that exposes his ignorance.

Allen West, fmr. Congressman, on defense spending. How much do we need to spend to be safe from attack?

He voted for the NDAA

END OF STORY

I wanted to know where Jan

I wanted to know where Jan was going with the line of questioning about the number of bases we have. He was cut off and it went in a different direction.

Allen West is a pretty good bullshitter - he uses a lot of words to take up time like president clinton - watch the Colbert Report with Clinton recently he's like: "Now Mr President I reserve the right to cut you off just in case you try to steer the conversation over into Alaska."

Also - I wanted Jan to say: "Everyone else seems to be doing just fine spending a fraction of what we spend on defense - so at what point are we getting a little paranoid?"

Also: "What's more important: Military Spending or a Healthy Economy? or Where is the line where Military Spending actually becomes detrimental to the stability of our economy and our national security? Are we there right now?"

Jan usually does a good job.
He's the Ben Swann of investigative journalism.

Jan - Produce some of your own "Inside Edition" type of shows online -> you know like Stossel used to do but keep the focus Political. I would use it on my domain name if you'd like to discuss. Since you're doing it anyway - why not add some organization..maybe a Brand Name?

Well, MIC Allen's right about not having a nat'l def .plan...

(but they sure as hell have a National Destruction Plan well under way.)

I tried as hard as I could to understand MIC Allen, but all I came away with was: We don't have a Nat'l Defense Plan. So what defense spending would you be referring to, Jan? BOING. All together now: To another planet we go, planet we go, planet we go. To another planet we go, So early in the morning...]

"We don't have a national defense plan".(?) Really? For starters, what do you call DHS? 'Patriot Act'? NDAA? DRONES in our skies? S. 649? H.R. 347? SOPA, CISPA? Civil Asset Forfeiture? How far do I need to go back? 1913? Federal Reserve, IRS?

THAT IS The 'PLAN', MIC Allen. NOT to have a National Defense Plan.

Destruction from within. How convenient, we're all terrorist now And we're paying for it! How clever! NOT!

What a disgrace to his uniform, he is.

Great interview... wasn't this West idiot defeated in his race?

I thought he was thrown out of congress by his own constituents last go around.

Great job Jan! Well done.

Rediculous

This politician is so full of himself. He didn't allow himself to consider what the reporter was saying. Until we get common sense people into office we will have outrageous military spending as well as social programs.

This is the endless war against the fools that we vote into office.

Jan is doing the work

That we all need to be doing. If no one else will ask the tough questions, ask them yourself. Each layer of hypocrisy that is unraveled and we get closer to the truth, the more even the playing field becomes. Socratic method + logic = exposing ones true beliefs in a world of lies!

Thanks again, Jan for everything you do.

When your interviewees abruptly get up because "they have somewhere to be" they know you know you've exposed their hypocritical thinking. You know you've got to be doing something right.

He opposes bases in Germany

He opposes bases in Germany and Korea? I guess that's an improvement over the old Allen West.

West voted against intervention in Libya and foreign aid. He is obviously an idiot and a talking head, but clearly not a devoted neocon like Rubio is.

Edit: Seems like West wanted to cut military spending before he arrived in Congress. http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2010/11/16/130512/west-def...
While in Congress, he was probably influenced by MIC lobbyists and so switched his position. Now he's out, he's probably changing again.

Jan is awesome. This is what

Jan is awesome.

This is what real journalism looks like. No softball questions and buddy-buddy BS. Rather, thoughtful, adversarial and incisive questions coupled with a refusal to accept inane talking points in lieu of substantive answers.

To repeat, Jan is awesome.

sigh

Another politician with all the answers already decided for him, trained to say sentences in a certain way and told to answer without thought.

Just like a robot.

delusional...

Allen West just proved to me that the shill is most often paraded.

Perfect replies. Perfect.

Perfect replies. Perfect.

Jan, this interview is your best yet. Again, what made it on hit is your counterpoints, your replies. They were sensible, simple, clear and forward, no games. They just stood and quietly smashed West's answers and would-be answers. Jan, your replies/follow-up questions were awesome. You dropped logic bomb after logic bomb. Great work.

Allen West was an Israeli Ass

Allen West was an Israeli Ass Licker and he lost. That's it.

Flying airplanes into buildings is just a flesh wound and should be treated as such.

Focusing on nuances of war to promote more war is stupid.

These are the kinds of questions in this video all reporters should be asking, and quit insulting our intelligence.

Nice work, Jan.

You are the only one exposing this tyranny. That fact speaks volumes because it means the rest of the talking-heads are also neocons.

Great

interview Jan!

Your interviews just get better and better. I love how you gently lead them over the target and drop the anvil on their heads.

West is a dangerous individual who has quite a following of the foaming at the mouth "let's make a glass parking lot out of the Middle East" types.. His ignorance and aloof attitude toward Russia was highlighted very well. He is yet another "Israel First"(former) politician that is the bane of our existence.

Your efforts are much appreciated.

BTW, decoded data from the "black boxes" provided by the NTSB through a FOIA request had shown that the "cockpit door" was never opened. (at least on flight 77) Make of it what you will.
