Matthew Duss (Foundation for Middle East Peace) and Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky)

On Foreign Entanglements, Matt and Rob discuss the possible use of chemical weapons in Syria. Rob says Assad is probing the “pink line.” Has the Syrian civil war really hurt US interests?

Bush Rehabilitation Project, and close with the neoconservative reaction to Ron Paul’s new institute.
