Roundtable: Where is the Arab League on fight against ISIS?

(CNN) – President Obama announced his new, escalated plan to defeat ISIS Wednesday.

Today, the President is facing criticism from both sides of the aisle, many pushing for a more specific plan, others calling the proposal too weak to work.

And why can't the U.S. get the Saudis, the U.A.E., Qatar, Kuwait, or Jordan – nations that are much more directly threatened by ISIS – to contribute to this fight?
