"Between a rock and a hard place:" U.S. foreign policy with ISIS and the Ukraine

Security in the Middle East is in turmoil because of ISIS. While the recent beheading of 21 Coptic Christians is generating focused media attention, political leaders are at odds over what, if anything, can be done about ISIS. And in other news, pressure is intensifying on the Obama administration to consider arming Ukraine against Russia-backed rebels. We’ll talk with the University of Chicago’s John Mearsheimer about what he thinks can, and can’t be done, about ISIS and the situation in Ukraine.
