Mike Barnicle on the situation inside Syria in the fight against ISIS

Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle talks with Republican presidential candidate Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) about the situation inside Syria in the fight against ISIS, now complicated further by a rising Russian presence. “There is a growing consensus that Syria is already a failed state and a growing consensus that Jordan, under siege by refugees, is in danger of collapsing. So, as unattractive as it might seem to many people, is it not a possibility that the best immediate strategy is to realize that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is going to be there for a while and to work out some structure with the Russians on the ground to have al-Assad lead whatever is left of Syria for several months—and then have him depart?,” asks Mike. Listen to the discussion and Senator Graham’s admission that there are no good options right now. On MSNBC.
