Syria Conflict Could Escalate In Many Directions

Weekend Edition Sunday host Rachel Martin speaks with Ambassador Frederic Hof about how the conflict might play out in the coming days. Hof is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council and recently served as special advisor for transition in Syria in the State Department.
