Chris Hayes: The Familiar Drumbeat of War

The same foreign policy elites who marched us into the war in Iraq are back, beating the drums for military intervention in Syria. Chris Hayes speaks with Laura Flanders, host of GRITtv and contributing writer to Yes! Magazine, who opposed the Iraq war from the beginning. He also talks to Jonathan Chait, New York Magazine columnist who supported the Iraq War initially but now says he was wrong about it. Hayes hosts Matthew Yglesias, economics correspondent for Slate, who also supported the Iraq War but has since called it a mistake so grave he decided to write a book about it entitled, Heads in the Sand: How the Republicans Screw Up Foreign Policy and Foreign Policy Screws Up the Democrats.
