Iraq Continues to Crumble: What Are the Options?

Hosted by  • 

In Iraq, fighters led by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria continue to move closer to Baghdad, where the government says it's deploying more troops. In Washington, President Obama says the US won't send troops, but that he's still weighing "selective military action." Also, the White House is weighing potential safety rules for trains carrying barrels of explosive crude oil across the country every day. Oil train crashes have sparked a wave of protests and activism. Sara Terry guest hosts.
