    But Ms. Cutter, WMD's were found in Iraq, as shown by WikiLeaks. Check your facts before spewing the party line.

    Doesn't Newt have a book to sell or something? I have no idea why CNN is featuring this hypocritical grifter on a so-called news show. When Jon Stewart destroyed Crossfire a few years ago the world was better for it. Now they bring it back with, of all people, Newt Gingrich! Pathetic. At least they could find another real conservative, rather than this ridiculous money-grubbing loser.

    With the Obama administration’s constant and heavy emphasis on the heinous murders of 429 Syrian children by ricin gas and the gruesome footage of that act, I suggest the United States should start putting its aborted babies on display. The aborted babies should be wrapped in shrouds and lined up on, let's see we'll need a pretty big area, perhaps on football fields for the whole world to see the heinous murders of abortionists. At the tune of approximately 4,000 aborted babies each day we'll need a whole lot of football fields. Maybe then those who are so appalled at 429 Syrian children in shrouds would see the irony of their misguided thinking and lead this country back to morality. Talk about a holocaust!

    Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Ask your friendly scientist: If a NUCLEAR BOMB -God forbid- drops on a city of 20 million souls -how many SURVIVORS?

    GOD FORBID someone suggest TALKING as a path to peace. The United States=OBAMA, Syria=ASSAD. ("Man is complicated, God is simple.")

    How hypocritical is Kissinger's concern for the legitimization of poison gas, when the U.S. & Russia legitimize owning 16,000 NUCLEAR BOMBS?

    Why's the world so keen on RED-LINING poison gas, but not NUCLEAR BOMBS? Gas=baby powder compared to one nuclear bomb on a city of 20 million souls.

    I refuse, repeat, refuse to watch any show that features Newt Gingrich.

    First, I like the basic format of this show but I think it would be an improvement if it was an hour long. The topics need more time to be explored.

    Second, I think it is a serious detraction from the credibility of the show that Ms. Cutter consistently talks over her guest; at least one of them. As they should, both Ms. Cutter and Mr. Gingrich set up scenarios and questions but it seems Ms. Cutter could not abide anything Sen Paul had to say in response to questions. I do not often agree with Mr. Paul but I would like to actually hear his responses to direct questions. In addition, when she disagreed with Sen Paul, she would respond with sarcasm and even make immature faces. At times, she appeared to actually be completing Mr. Paul's statements in the manner she wanted him to respond. Ms. Cutter was both rude and unprofessional. I was especially entertained when she grabbed Mr. Gingrich's arm to restrain him when it appeared he was going to try to keep Sen Menendez on track with the question. Is it only she who is permitted to interrupt?
