Web Exclusive: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on voting against measure to arm Syrian rebels

Both the House and Senate have voted to approve a measure to train and arm Syrian rebels. President Obama thanked lawmakers, saying the bipartisan support showed Americans were united in the fight against Islamic State militants. Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii is also an Iraq war vet and she voted against the measure. She told Anderson that her biggest problem is that "the mission is unclear."

There are serious questions about why the U.S. needs to lead the way in the battle against ISIS.  Anderson talked it over with U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power, who said regional powers need to put "skin in the game."

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. on the battle against Ebola 

For the first time in its history, the United Nations held an emergency meeting on a public health crisis. The Security Council voted to declare West Africa's Ebola outbreak a "threat to international peace and security." New numbers from the World Health Organization show more than 2,600 people have died from Ebloa and more than 5,000 have been infected. When it comes to fighting Ebola, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power told Anderson that "words are meaningless, unless the words today turn into concrete commitments."

Where do you draw the line between punishing and abusing a child?

Adrian Peterson's mother describes him as a loving father and says he was only disciplining his son in the same way he was disciplined growing up. Speaking to The Houston Chronicle, she went on to say, "When you whip those you love, it's not abuse, but love. You want to make them understand what they did wrong."  Peterson is charged with felony child abuse. The case set off a national debate over discipling children. Gary Tuchman had a frank discussion about spanking with three generations of a family in Georgia.

Anderson discussed the culture of child discipline with CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin, New York Times columnist Charles Blow and cultural critic Michaela Angela Davis.
