Join host Ben Kieffer as we talking about the U.S. closing its embassy in Syria this week amid growing violence there. What can or should the U.S. do? Also, new U.S. sanctions are imposed on Iran as tensions rise between that country and Israel. And, will GOP caucus results in Minnesota and Colorado show Mitt Romney remaining at the front of the pack? Ben’s guests are political scientists Jim McCormick of Iowa State University and Bruce Gronbeck of the University of Iowa.
