Ceasefire on CROSSFIRE: Congress, public not on board for military action to punish Syrian regime for use of WMD

CNN’s new edition of CROSSFIRE launched today on CNN/U.S.  The topic  was what the U.S. should do next about Syria.

Hosts Stephanie Cutter and Newt Gingrich found common ground on their different viewpoints: the President has a difficult road ahead to convince the American people to support military action to punish the Syrian regime for using chemical weapons against its own people – and the possibility that military intervention against Syria may be avoided if Syria can verifiably relinquish its WMDs.

CROSSFIRE airs each weekday on CNN/U.S. at 6:30p.m. ET.
