Iraqi forces have done little to slow ISIS' march toward Baghdad. Anderson spoke with The New Yorker's Dexter Filkins about the state of Iraq's military and America's role in creating the current government they are supposed to protect.
Peter Bergen explains to Anderson how "there is no longer a border between Syria and Iraq" because of ISIS.
U.S. officials say the Obama administration is considering airstrikes as one of the options to deal with the threat from ISIS. Anderson asked retired Major General James 'Spider' Marks whether that would require U.S. personnel on the ground to provide intelligence?
Anderson spoke with Arwa Damon in northern Iraq about how Kurdish fighters have been successful defending against ISIS attacks.
