Episode details

The man behind defunct mercenary provider Blackwater sees private air power as the key to winning the war in Afghanistan. A new report links Erik Prince to efforts to buy or build private gunships - the kind of weapon only the United States and a few other countries have at their disposal.

David Axe, who writes for the Daily Beast, joins us to discuss the results of his investigation.
