Among the international community, there is near unanimous support for a proposal to seize and destroy the al-Assad regime's stockpile of chemical weapons.

James "Spider" Marks take a look at what it would take to secure Syria's chemical weapons.
He's "part of the problem, not the solution," says Sen. John Cornyn–and the Republican from Texas is not alone. Many on Capitol Hill doubt that Vladimir Putin will follow through on a plan to get Syria's al-Assad regime to turn over its chemical weapons. CNN's Brian Todd reports.
Anthony Weiner raises a finger to say goodbye to the press. CNN's Jeanne Moos bids farewell to Weiner and Eliot Spitzer.
Her research was referenced several times in Congressional hearings on Syria; Sen. John McCain and Secretary of State John Kerry mentioned her by name; and she's even been seen here on CNN.

CNN's Barbara Starr reports.
Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee has been a strong Republican ally of the White House.

Obama is "not comfortable" being commander-in-chief.
