The Department of Defense often survives budget cuts, and yet is a full 20 percent of the annual budget — we take a closer look at where the money is going; Pakistan requests U.S. special forces leave the country; update on Japan; wondering whether Donald Trump is serious about running for president; the history of black confederate soldiers and how we look at the Civil War now; and using the anniversary of the first human cosmonaut to discuss math, science, and the idea of right and wrong.
