"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Paul Bremer and Eliot Engel offer insight into Syrian situation, potential US involvement

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Paul Bremer says specifics of American plan in Syria is critical

As the conflict in Syria intensified, on Friday evening Paul Bremer joined "Piers Morgan Live" guest host Wolf Blitzer with his assessment of the situation, specifically the impact of potential military action taken by the United States.

"I think he has to do something. He said out fairly clearly a red line that now has been crossed at least the couple of times," the former U.S. Ambassador in Iraq said, speaking of President Barack Obama.

"I think the real question is what are we trying to achieve with whatever strikes the President may authorize," said Bremer. "I'm a little worried that a very narrowly circumscribed military action now may in fact give a message of weakness not a message of strength both in Syria and in Iran, more particularly in Iran."

  • "Good enough for me": Eliot Engel supports and trusts Obama

Filling in for Piers Morgan on Friday, guest host Wolf Blitzer welcomed Eliot Engel, asking the New York Democratic Representative to share his insight on the increasingly volatile situation in Iraq:

"We've also gotten word, as the President has said, that there were communications that were intercepted, clearly showing that the Syrians were the ones who did this," explained Engel.

Following up, Blitzer wondered if these audio messages had been experience first-hand by his guest:

"Did they play those communications, Congressman? For you, did you hear the actual voice of Syrian commanders speaking about ordering chemical weapons to be used?"

Despite admitting that he himself had not personally heard the communications, Engel felt confident in their authenticity:

"No, we did not. But I think if the President of the United States and the Secretary of State say that they have them, that's good enough for me."

Watch the rest of the clip as the "Piers Morgan Live" guest goes on to support the president in his call for American military intervention in Syria, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Piers, With the global outrage about the (purported) Syrian military's continued use of poisen gas, why have there been no protests by our protest-hungry American public (at least on the news media) at either the Syrian embassy in washington, D.C. (2215 Wyoming Avenu, N. W., 20008) or the Syrian Consulate General's offices in NYC (820 Second Avenue, NY, NY, 10007)???? (( NYC Phone # 212-661-1313; Fax# 212681-1468; ))

    Every year 45,000 Americans die because they can not afford the medical services they need to keep them alive, but our Elected Idiots have voted 40 time to appeal ObamaCare. Now, these same illiterate Idiots want to go to war over 1,400 dead Syrians. Congress should have a long debate about the definition of Human Rights Violations, however it is more than likely that they would once again come up with the wrong answer.

    "It's just not good enough, Wolfe. You hob-knobbling with all these rich cats and leaving us out on the street. We have to, need to, get more comfy on the couch if we're going to get to twist each others tails. I mean you get to eat all these pork-chops and of a drinking green tea with your kennel mates."

    "Thats what us cats keep saying, Wolfe. Two puppy-dog tails in reply to a pooper-scoop, is still going to leave one hell of a stink IF we dont master our house duties first."
