Is America too war weary for military intervention in Syria?

"Our exhaustion may not be a sufficient reason for the United States not to muster the energy to intervene in a conflict for strong moral and strategic reasons." That's how Leon Wieseltier, literary editor of the New Republic made his case for America using force in Syria. It set off a fierce debate with the AC360 Later panel.

Is disarming the Assad regime "Mission Impossible"?

David Kay was America's chief weapons inspector in Iraq, and he says there are likely hundreds of people qualified to search for chemical weapons in Syria. But he estimates the job would we require at least 2,000 inspectors. Anderson spoke to him and former CIA officer Bob Baer about what the inspectors would do once they are inside Syria, and the difficulty of completing their mission.

Disarming Syria's Chemical Stockpile

The United States and Russia agreed to give up chemical weapons, and more than 15 years later the job of destroying them is still not done. That effort will be far more difficult in Syria where weapons inspectors will have to work in the middle of a brutal civil war.  Nic Robertson reports.

What should President Obama say about Syria now?

The Senate vote on Syria on hold. Secretary Kerry's seemingly off the cuff comments may have opened up a new avenue to avoid military intervention. But President Obama is hours away from delivering a major speech on the crisis in Syria. Anderson and the panel take a closer look at what the President should say to the nation.

He suggested a strike could be avoided if President Assad turned over all of his chemical weapons to the international community. CNN's Dana Bash has the latest developments.
