‘Left, Right & Center’: The Syrian Debate Crescendo and More NSA

Posted on Sep 6, 2013

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists this week discuss Obama’s failure to win broad support for military action against Syria during the G-20 Summit in Russia. The lack of enthusiasm is not helping him win over Congress.

Rich Lowry of the National Review says he is most afflicted by two Scarlet A’s—Ambiguity and Ambivalence. Is the action meant to hurt Assad’s regime, or just send a message? And how vested is Obama if he says the red line was drawn by the world?

Host Matt Miller says that in a tragic world, there may be things we don’t do anything about because doing so could result in something worse.

Scheer calls it an agonizingly close call. Could Obama really be impeached if he goes forward without support from Congress?

More revelations about the National Security Agency’s practices came to light this week. How long will Edward Snowden’s information trickle out, and which organization will get the Pulitzer Prize for it?
