Rep. Adam Smith On Syrian Intervention

President Obama is asking Congress to approve air strikes against Syria in the wake of evidence that chemical weapons were used on civilians in the country. How is Washington's congressional delegation responding?

Rep. Adam Smith has just returned from the Syria-Jordan border. He said in a statement that the United States “should expand and accelerate our support for moderate elements of opposition forces” in Syria. Rep. Smith joins us to explain how the United States might support Syrian opposition.
