What is really going in the Syrian uprising? Is it al-Qaeda and foreign fighters versus the al-Asad regime? What is the Free Syrian Army? Who is responsible for the terrorist bombings around the country and who is responsible for the massacres in al-Houla and al-Qubayr? What is the sectarian nature of the conflict? Should the U.S. intervene and if so, in what manner?

These are some of the questions Jewish Policy Center’s Director of Policy, Matthew RJ Brodsky addresses, speaking before the Center for Security Policy’s National Security Briefing on Capitol Hill. Brodsky gives nine reasons why the U.S. should take the lead in intervening in Syria and explains why hastening the pace of transition to a post-Asad Syria is a vital security interest to the U.S. In the follow-up Q & A session, Brodsky and CSP President Frank Gaffney explore the regional implications of any possible U.S. intervention.
