Former Islamist extremist speaks out

Some suggest if the U.S. helps topple the Assad regime, we would be fighting on the side of al Qaeda. There are serious questions about who makes up the Syrian opposition, and what they really want. Maajid Nawaz was once a self-professed Islamic radical. He has since left that life and brings his unique perspective to the AC360 Later panel.

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.

Senator McCain on Russia's plan for Syria

Senator John McCain is a long time supporter of American military
intervention in Syria's civil war. He speaks to Anderson and voices his
concerns about the diplomatic deal Russia is working to broker.
McCain even questions why Secretary John Kerry is flying to Geneva to meet
with his Russian counterpart, instead of holding that meeting in New York.
Does the U.S. have credibility on Syria without the threat of military
force? Anderson asked that question to former Bush administration national
security official Mike Doran and Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger.
