‘Left, Right & Center’: The Syrian Quagmire, Pfc. Manning and College Costs

Posted on Aug 23, 2013

President Obama expresses concern about the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria. France and England have taken unilateral action, but when will the U.S. act there and in Egypt? Richard Haass says America must respond. Charles Krauthammer says Egypt is a zero sum game.

Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning is sentenced to 35 years for leaking classified material, and says she wants to begin hormone therapy while in custody. Was justice done for the Army private responsible for the largest leak in U.S. history?

Obama goes on the road and proposes a new college tuition plan that rates schools. The March on Washington celebrates its 50th anniversary. The crew weighs its successes and failures.

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer, The Washington Free Beacon’s Matthew Continetti and host Matt Miller discuss these topics on this week’s program.
