Conn Hallinan on Syria; Norman Orenstein on the Devolution of the Republican Party

WeSyria take a look at what’s happening inside the Republican Party with someone who has a window into the right. Norman Ornstein,  a resident scholar at the American Enterprise institute, thinks the GOP has created a monster it can’t control–we’ll look at why. But first: Russia is launching cruise missiles into Syria; the US Secretary of Defense has just said the US may put boots on the ground there, and our State Department just invited Iran into talks about ending the war. We’ll look at the geopolitics behind the fighting with Conn Hallinan.
