Is a U.S. Attack on Syria in America's national interest?

President Obama is trying build support for a strike on Syria. He's raising the possibility of the Assad regime's chemical weapons changing hands and being used against the United States. Chief NationalCorrespondent John King compares this to the Bush Doctrine. General Michael Hayden warns there is narrow space for the Obama administration to punish Assad for the chemical attacks, without regime change. It was all part of Anderson's discussion with a panel that also included Chief International Correspondent Christianne Amanpour, and National Security Analyst Fran Townsend.

Is the Obama administration "ready to go" on Syria mission?

Vice President Joe Biden says there is "no doubt" the Assad regime used chemical weapons to attack innocent Syrians. If ordered to strike, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says U.S. forces are "ready to go." But what are the Obama administration's military, strategic, and diplomatic goals? Anderson asked New Yorker staff writer Dexter Filkins, Newsweek and Daily Beast special correspondent Peter Beinart, national security analyst Fran Townsend, and chief national correspondent John King.

America's response to Syria's "moral obscenity"

Secretary of State John Kerry called the suspected chemical attack in Syria "a moral obscenity," and blamed the Assad regime. According to a senior administration official, in the next few days President Obama will be presented with final options on dealing with the situation in Syria. Already, four American warships in the Mediterranean are awaiting their orders. So what can we expect to happen next? Anderson asked national security analyst and former Bush administration Homeland Security Adviser Fran Townsend, former CIA officer Bob Baer, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution Mike Duran, and chief national correspondent John King.

Michele Bachmann's political legacy

John King and David Gergen discuss why Rep. Michele Bachmann won't run again in 2014 and how her legislative career will be remembered by her colleagues and constituents.

In a video statement, Bachmann said her decision has nothing to do with an ethics investigation into her presidential campaign or her concerns about not winning another election.

But King points out she won by fewer than 5,000 votes last time she ran. "The Republicans win today by having Michele Bachmann step aside," he says. "The leadership would prefer a different candidate."

Pressure on Biden and Ryan in debate

Ahead of the debate, Gloria Borger and John King compare differences and similarities between V.P. Biden and Rep. Ryan. The generational divide is a factor, but they both have blue collar backgrounds.  And both have an eye on the 2016 election.

As for who has the bigger advantage, the case could be made for either of them. "You could say Paul Ryan is younger, he has more passion, he has more energy. You could say Joe Biden is more experienced, 36 years in the Senate, he's the sitting Vice President, he's been on the stage before," says King.

The pressure for Ryan comes with the goal of maintaining the campaign's momentum after last week's debate between Mitt Romney and Pres. Obama. But as King points out, "Americans pick presidents, not vice presidents."
