Sunday on State of the Union

Air strikes increase and the coalition builds as the U.S. ramps up the fight against ISIS.  Candy gets White House reaction from Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken.

Senator Chris Murphy is a democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, voted against President Obama's plan to arm and train rebels in Syria, supports airstrikes, and is worried about another open-ended U.S. involvement in the Muslim world.  Senator Murphy joins former Joint Chiefs Chairman Richard Myers and former Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns on the long and short term consequences of U.S. involvement.

Bush’s, whose policies he opposed so strongly.  Our political roundtable dives into that, plus the legacy of Attorney General Eric Holder.  Ken Cuccinelli, Mercedes Schlapp, LZ Granderson, and Penny Lee are with us.

President Obama says the Ebola outbreak is not only a humanitarian crisis, but national security problem, too.  Dr. Adam Levine and virus hunter Joseph Fair are back from ground zero in West Africa with firsthand accounts.
