Garland and Lee listen to several of these audio clips and give their thoughts on Haley's remarks.

    As the push for further military action in Syria heats up, what is driving President Trump's decision making process on this critical issue? Several guests, including anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, join the show to break down this uncertain situation.
