Syria and Chemical Weapons
The situation in Syria gets more confusing by the day. The Obama Administration is treading very cautiously around conflicting reports of who actually staged a sarin gas attack, the government of besieged President Bashar al Assad, or the rebels fighting to take over the country.
The U.S. backed Israel’s decision to make military strikes by air in Damascus - but there are questions over whether this might mean an escalation of tensions in the region.
Senator John McCain, and others, have called for arming the rebels, but Senator Chris Murphy, who just returned from the region, has doubts.
Today, Murphy will join us along with Joe Cirincione from Ploughshares Fund.
