President Obama took his case for military action in Syria to a skeptical American public last night and asserted the need to keep pressure on the regime of Bashar al-Assad. At the same time, he asked Congress to delay a vote on the matter while his administration pursues a diplomatic path. Host Ben Kieffer along with Bruce Gronbeck of the University of Iowa and Steffen Schmidt Iowa State University discuss this curious course of events in this crisis.  Did the President make his case? And also, what's Russia’s move?
