‘Left, Right & Center’: Syria, Boston and George W. Bush
Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss the White House’s belief that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. How should President Obama respond if such a red line has been crossed? Should he leave the investigation and action to the United Nations? Will the world support something stronger from the United States? The Boston bombing suspect stops talking after his Miranda rights are read. How much should the FBI have acted on Russia’s earlier concerns? George W. Bush’s Presidential Library opens. What will his legacy be?
Scheer is joined by host Matt Miller and Michael Steele, former lieutenant governor of Maryland and a MSNBC contributor who provides the right’s perspective.
