With the prospect of the United States waging airstrikes against Iraq a very real possibility, on Thursday evening Erin Burnett invited a vast collection of military analysts to share their insights and perspectives.
While the world was watching Gaza, ISIS was advancing rapidly in Northern Iraq. Now emboldened, the terrorist group is slaughtering Iraqi minorities. The question is, will the United States intervene?
Watch the above video as Philipp Mudd and Major General James "Spider" Marks debate the notion of U.S. airtrikes.
Meanwhile, following her initial conversation with Mudd and Marks, Burnett then asked James Zogby and Dan Senor to join the discussion for additional context.
ISIS is a "gang of thugs," said Zogby, the president of the Arab American Institute.
In the second video, hear more from Burnett's panel of experts, as Zogby, Mudd, Marks, and Senor all discuss Americaâ€™s capacity to fight the terrorists group Isis, while debating whether or not American intervention in Iraq is an intelligent decision.
