Paris, Turkey, Russia and ISIS: What to Make of It All
French President Francois Hollande met with President Barack Obama at the White House Tuesday in a show of "total solidarity" with France against terrorism.
Both leaders recommitted their nations to the global fight against ISIS, but set limits on how far their military engagement would go.
The meeting comes as the U.S. State Department issued a global terror alert and news that Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet, leaving speculation that it could lead to war between the two countries.
What does all this mean? Chief International Correspondent Gary Lane, who has just returned from assignment in the Middle East and Paris, offers some perspective.
