Despite attempts by his superiors to bury his controversial work, it eventually was exposed during a United States Senate Budget Committee on Defense hearing, which though scheduled to go unnoticed, made the cover of <em>Time </em>magazine on March 7, 1983. When he retired from the Pentagon after 33 years, his retirement interview with Bill Moyers won an Emmy for being the best news magazine show of 2003.  He also appeared in two award winning documentary movies: <em>Why We Fight</em> (2005) and <em>Who Killed Lt. Van Dorn</em> (2019).  After retirement, Chuck and his wife Alison moved aboard a small sailboat, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, and spent 10 years exploring the Mediterranean Sea, before returning to the United States in 2015. He has written over 200 op-eds that appeared occasionally in the mainstream media (including the <em>Washington Post</em>, <em>Los Angeles Times</em>, <em>Wall Street Journal</em>, <em>Newsday</em>, and regional papers) as well as the web-based media spanning the political spectrum from the <em>American Conservative</em> on the right to <em>Counterpunch</em> on the left.  His website, The Blaster: Comments on Politics, Foreign Policy, and Defense, contains many of his reports and writings and can be found at <a href="http://chuckspinney.blogspot.com/">http://chuckspinney.blogspot.com</a>.International Affairs;Politics and GovernmentDefense and foreign policy—the political economy of defense spending and why that spending is out of control; how the domestic politics of defense distorts foreign policy and weakens the military; domestic politics and the origins of the new cold war; the militarization of American foreign policy; the central role of water in the Arab/Israeli disputes.
