Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and former State Department official Ronan Farrow says the U.S. is becoming a nation that "shoots first and asks questions later." His new book, "War on Peace," examines the history of the State Department and what he sees as the radical decline of diplomatic peacemaking in favor of tactical, short-term military solutions. Farrow joins Forum to discuss his book and the future of U.S. global influence amid mass agency layoffs, budget cuts and discord.
