The Unrest In Syria - What Happens Next

The Unrest In Syria - What Happens Next

We chat with a local activist in the Washington region who is part of the opposition movement pushing for regime change in Syria.

The movement to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has stretched on now for more than a year and a half. But the pace of events has quickened in recent weeks -- violence is consuming major cities, the country's prime minister defected to Jordan and Kofi Annan quit his position as United Nations special envoy to Syria. We chat with a local activist who is part of the opposition movement pushing for regime change about what happens next and the role he sees for the United States in Syria's future.
