Hosted by

Syria's Crackdown ContinuesThe United Nations estimates that more than 5000 people have been killed by the government of Syria in the past 10 months. After the Assad regime agreed to pull tanks and troops out of cities and talk to the opposition, the Arab League sent a task force to the country last week to monitor progress. In Time magazine, Rania Abouzeid said that might be "mission impossible." We hear from her and others where that leaves the UN and the US.
