FROM THIS EPISODE

As Russia continues to bombard Syria, it's still targeting enemies of President Assad but not America's enemy ISIS. Has Vladimir Putin scored a lasting victory or created what could be as much a quagmire for Russia as it is for the US?

Also on the program, will the first debate among Democrats shake up the race for President?

Russia Changes the Battleground, at Least for the Moment 32 MIN, 55 SEC

President Obama said yesterday the US has failed “to change the dynamic inside Syria.”  He’s all but conceded that Vladimir Putin has. Russian air strikes are helping two American enemies: Syrian President Assad, and, perhaps indirectly, the Islamic State.
