Syria and the Responsibility to Protect -- The civil war in Syria rages on, and by all accounts, it is a grave humanitarian crisis. The Obama administration has come under steady criticism for failing to do more to stop the violence. The program reviews the application of the "Responsibility to Protect" in cases of conflict during the post-Cold War period. The "Responsibility to Protect," or "R-to-P," is an international principle that was codified by the United Nations in 2005. It's based on the premise that every government has a responsibility to protect its citizenry from atrocities or mass murder. Anchor Madeleine Brand examines how the U.S. and the international community have responded to humanitarian crises around the globe -- from Somalia and Rwanda to Bosnia and Libya.
