Sunni extremist fighters have taken control of a facility Saddam Hussein once used to produce and store chemical weapons. CNN's Nic Robertson reported on the plant in 2002 and he joins Anderson to discuss the latest development in the crisis in Iraq.
President Barack Obama said Thursday he was sending up to 300 military advisers to Iraq to help the embattled government hold off advances from the north by extremist militants. Anderson speaks with Retired Army Lieutenant General Mark Hertling, who commanded U.S. forces in Northern Iraq from 2007 through 2009 about what can we expect from the non-combat advisors.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
