The United States operates hundreds of military bases in foreign countries – a network that extends American influence far outside U.S. borders. But those foreign bases comes with financial, environmental and diplomatic costs that are often overlooked. We chat with author David Vine, whose newest book explores how America’s network of military bases abroad may be making the United States and other countries less safe.
