Wolf Blitzer Interviews Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta

The full interview transcripts are available here: "Blitzer interviews Secretaries Clinton and Panetta."

The discussion of Syria policy is especially problematic --- the Democrats are deferring leadership to the international community.

Secretary Panetta especially sounds like he's overwhelmed.
