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.

Syria has agreed to a Russian plan to give up its chemical weapons, a move that could forestall international military strikes and possibly give diplomacy some positive traction.
It is my opinion that President Obama has not made a case for how and why US military action in Syria is in our own national interest. I am concerned that US military action in Syria will result in another extended involvement in the Middle East and this is unwise.-Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
