Santorum vs. Lieberman: Trust Russia on Syria?

On Tuesday, September 10, hosts Van Jones and S.E. Cupp sat down with former U.S. Senators Rick Santorum and Joe Lieberman to discuss U.S. involvement in Syria and whether or not to trust Russia's plan to have Syria hand over its chemical weapons to international control.

Santorum says that the U.S. has "no national security interest" and "no moral obligation" to constitute a strike in Syria. Lieberman argued that a military strike Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is scared and a strike would hurt him.

Tonight in the Crossfire: Lieberman and Santorum on Syria

President Obama says that a plan suggested by Russia to have Syria hand over its chemical arsenal to international control could avert American strikes "if it's real." As Obama prepares to address the nation, should he follow Russia's lead on Syria, or should he keep threatening a military strike.

Former US Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Rick Santorum (R-PA) join hosts Van Jones and S.E. Cupp in the Crossfire to debate the options.
