Growing Pressure On The U.S. To Respond To Events In Syria

The United Nations is reporting that its inspections team in Damascus, Syria, was shot at by snipers this morning as it headed to the scene of an alleged chemical attack. Syria agreed on Sunday to allow inspectors to visit the site but the U.S. and its allies say evidence has likely been destroyed by government shelling. The White House now says there is "very little doubt" that the Syrian government used chemical weapons to kill hundreds of civilians last week. President Barack Obama has not yet indicated whether the U.S. will respond, but pressure is growing for action against the Assad regime. Guest host Frank Sesno and his guests discuss the possibility of U.S. military intervention in Syria.
