Syrian crisis intensifies: Fmr. Amb. to Iraq John Negroponte on if a coalition of countries could intervene

Russian official tells CNN his government is not sending new helicopters to Syria and hasn't had a new contract in 20 years, but that official did say Russia refurbishes previously sold helicopters and it seems obviously that the secretary of state's statements are an effort to put more political pressure on Russia.

John Negroponte, former U.S. ambassador to Iraq, former director of National Intelligence and vice chair of McCarthy Associates Consulting Firm, talks with Soledad on "Starting Point" about the ongoing violence in Syria. He explains if a "coalition of the willing" in the region could intervene, and what little we know about opposition fighters.
