The progress of ISIS in Syria is forcing President Bashar al-Assad, as well as the U.S., to consider what comes next. Meanwhile, ISIS threatens the life of journalist Steven Sotloff, days after the release of a video showing the killing of fellow journalist James Foley. We discuss the latest developments, and the U.S. policy of not negotiating with terrorists.

Guests:

Danielle Pletka, senior vice president, Foreign and Defense Policy Studies at the American Enterprise Institute

Shadi Hamid, fellow at the Brookings Institution's Center for Middle East Policy and author of "Temptations of Power: Islamists and Illiberal Democracy in a New Middle East"

Amr Al-Azm, associate professor of Middle East history and anthropology at Shawnee State University in Ohio
