"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": What's the end game in Syria and how should Lora DiMaggio move on?

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.

  • What's the endgame in Syria?

Last night, Piers Morgan welcomed a team of experts to provide insight on the endgame in Syria. Major General James "Spider” Marks explained that what President Barack Obama left out of his PBS interview was very significant:

"The President has not established a strategy in terms, he hasn't given his intent," Marks explained. "He hasn't been able to draw a picture of what he is looking to achieve at the end of this very tactical engagement."

Morgan asked author Reza Aslan if America, the UN or the international community in general should be getting involved at all in Syria's civil war:

"I think President Obama wants to do that which is why he is talking about such a limited aerial strike which of course is going to do nothing to actually tip the balance of power in this conflict that's been raging for more than two years that's led to more than a 100,000 death so far," Aslan said.

When can we expect to see any action from the United States?

"That's all pretty hard to say whether the United States will wait for Britain or not. Britain also said that it will not take any direct military action unless and until the UN investigating team comes out with this report," Christiane Amanpour explained. "So, that was a sort of a left turn today because as you already said, it was a lot of hard charging from the Prime Minister's office, from the Secretary of State, the Foreign Secretary William Hague's office today and then it all sort of melted away by the evening when the UN resolution, the draft that they presented was also battled away."

  • Star Jones talks DiMaggio case

Veteran "Piers Morgan Live" guest Star Jones joined Piers Morgan from New York where she commented on Lora DiMaggio's fascinating interview with the host just this past Tuesday.

"Denial is not just a river in Egypt, I guess," Jones surmised. "I mean honestly to hear someone say that the perpetrator of such a horrific crime had given his life in order to save the person that he kidnapped. I think this just really shows when someone has made up in their mind that their family member is the victim in a situation when they were so obviously the perpetrator, then they're going to state with emphaticness that they are being victimized."

    Lori DiMaggio (and the tax payer) has every right to be shown the evidence against her brother. They might start by letting her know whose fingerprints were found on the crowbar. Perhaps all Mr. DiMaggio is guilty of is protecting the person who committed the murders, then attempting to destroy the evidence by setting his house on fire.

    This scenario is equally plausible to the one posited by the police. If there is hard evidence (fingerprints etc) to the contrary, the police owe it to the DiMaggios and others to make that evidence public.

    This morning I woke up and felt like Alice in Wonderland. Suddenly Britain had become France and France has become Britain regarding Syria.. At what point did Britain decide to put it's tail between it's legs and decide to go hide in the corner.
