Considering Syria More Carefully

Leah Bolger and Samer Abboud talk about Syria and American approaches to the situation there.

The news about Syria came so fast this week, news organizations struggled to keep up.  Just as Congress returned for a likely vote on authorizing military action, Syria showed a willingness to consider putting its chemical weapons under international control, perhaps rendering an American attack moot.  We'll get two viewpoints on Syria in this interview--from Arcadia University professor Samer Abboud, who studies politics and the economy in Syria and other countries, and from Veterans for Peace past national president Leah Bolger.
