Racism in the US military ranks? Reuters's Daniel Trotta on his report

A new article suggests white supremists could be using the U.S. military as a training ground.

Reuters reports that white supremacists, neo-Nazis and skinhead groups are encouraging followers to enlist and acquire military skills for future battles. The story is taking on more immediacy given the recent events in Wisconsin, where former U.S. Army soldier Wade Page killed six people at a Sikh temple and was also well-known in the white supremacist music scene.

This morning on "Early Start," Reuters's Daniel Trotta explains his report looking at how the US military has responded to violent racists in the ranks.
