Reps. Israel vs. Blackburn: Obama wavering on Syria?

U.S. Reps. Steve Israel (D-NY) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) joined hosts Stephanie Cutter and Newt Gingrich in the Crossfire to talk about President Obama's response on Syria and whether or not to trust the Russian plan for Syria to hand over its chemical arsenal to international control.

Rep. Blackburn said President Obama "wavers between having a military and a political solution" for Syria, while Rep. Israel countered that "we've got to keep all the options on the table."

Syria has reportedly accepted a Russian proposal to hand over its chemical weapons to international control, but the details of what was actually agreed upon are still murky.

Later tonight, Secretary of State John Kerry heads to Russia for talks on making that deal happen.

U.S. Representatives Steve Israel (D-NY) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) join hosts Newt Gingrich and Stephanie Cutter in the Crossfire tonight to debate how long the U.S. should wait for Syria to act on this offer.

We want you to weigh in: Should Congress force a deadline for Syria to turn over its chemical weapons? Vote below or tweet your response using #CrossfireReturns. You can also vote by commenting on our Facebook post.
