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.
With the Syrian civil war – and the prospect of American intervention – dominating media coverage worldwide, on Monday evening Fareed Zakaria and Nick Kristof joined "Piers Morgan Live" with their respective analysis and perspective.
"It sets a strange precedent which - this is supposed to be a cruise missile strike as far as we can tell. He said there was going to be a shot across the bow, somewhat symbolic. If for this, the president of the United States needs to go to Congress, this is changing our conception of executive power over the last 30 or 40 years," said the host of CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS." "It has been, you know, settled by both parties that because of the nature of America's responsibilities in the world, the President does have the leeway to act in situations like this that are not really a full-scale war."
With Wolf Blitzer filling in for Piers Morgan, Kristof spoke to the potential long term impact of Congress not supporting the president's call for United States military action in Syria:
"I think President Obama risked not only his own credibility but in a sense the country's as well. Now in foreign policy, you especially want self-confidence. You want predictability and I think by going to Congress he jeopardized that," noted the "The New York Times" columnist. "Now, if he thus indeed got Congressional approval, then I think a great deal will be forgiven and he'll have a stronger hand than before."
Hosting "Piers Morgan Live" on Monday evening, CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked Bob Corker about the prospect of supplying Syrian rebels with weapons so as to allow them to defend themselves against forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.
"I was in the region two and a half weeks ago, and I was totally embarrassed, and dismayed that not a single shipment of arms has made its way in the opposition. I was in a refugee camp in the Turkey/Syria border, and was embarrassed at what I received there with refugees and the fact that they are letdown by the international community," said the Republican senator from Tennessee. "I think, you know, the administration has chosen to go about this in a covert way. They've announced to the world they're doing it, but they're doing it covertly, for some reason. It may have started over the last two and a half weeks, but when I was there, nothing yet had arrived and so we stated this is our policy, and yet we have not followed through."
