Rubin: Administration having 'rough time explaining' foreign affairs

(CNN) - Terror reigned in the Syrian city of Daraa on Wednesday as intermittent gunfire rang out overnight and snipers held their positions on rooftops, a witness there said. Five people were killed by sniper fire on Tuesday, including a 6-year-old girl. Half a world away, United Nations Security Council will be briefed Wednesday on the crisis in Syria when it meets in a private session, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said. Syria's ambassador to the United Nations rejected Tuesday a call for an independent investigation into the reported killings of hundreds of demonstrators by government forces.

Today on American Morning, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State James Rubin explains why the situation in Syria is complicated for the United States and why it is different than Libya. Rubin, currently executive editor of the Bloomberg View, also describes what the events in Syria could mean for Iran and the balance of power in the region.
