OBAMA WAGES AIR WAR (ON TV) - How tight is President Obama’s bind on Syria? He’s sitting down today to face the tough questions from Chris Wallace in order to win approval for the president’s proposed air strikes against Syria in retaliation for the use of chemical weapons last month in that country’s civil war. Obama will face Wallace and anchors from the broadcast networks as well as CNN and PBS to make his pitch ahead of his scheduled national address on Tuesday night. Obama’s answers to Wallace’s hardball questions will air in the 6 p.m. ET hour.

Not necessarily from the government,’ Assad told ‘CBS This Morning’ co-host Charlie Rose. … In a clear reference to his allies in Iran and the Islamic militant group Hezbollah, Assad warned that his government is ‘not the only player in this region.’"
