Rep. King: "The Russians are holding all the cards" in Syria

The Taliban is taking credit for a daring strike just outside a U.S. consulate in Afghanistan.

A State Department official says it began when a wave of Taliban fighters opened fire on the consulate. A truck bomb went off, but miraculously, no Americans were injured.

The attack comes one day after the isolated leader of al Qaeda Ayman al-Zawahri released a new audio rant, this time urging terrorists to unleash a string of both small and large attacks inside the United States.

How serious are officials taking these threats? And an Obama administration official said that "we are coming closer to agreement on the scope of Syria's chemical weapons stockpile."

OutFront: Congressman Peter King (R-NY).
