The United States Weighs Options against Syria

Hosted by

Protesters in Libya have help from the US and other countries, but those in Syria are on their own against another regime willing to kill its own people. What does that reveal about diplomatic realities in the Middle East? Does the Obama Administration have a consistent policy? Also, President Obama releases his birth certificate and shakes up his National Security team. On Reporter's Notebook, Hamas and Fatah have agreed to joint government of the Palestinian Territories. Israel says that’s the end of the prospects for peace talks.
