What's the future of Jordan's involvement in IS fight?

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 5 February 2015

Dr. Lina Khatib is the director of the Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut. Previously, she was the co-founding head of the Program on Arab Reform and Democracy at Stanford University's Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law. She discusses Jordan's response to the Islamic State execution of Jordanian pilot, Moaz al-Kasasbeh, who was burned alive. Jordan has executed two prisoners in response, and is currently calling for intensified strikes against IS in response. But will the killing of Lieutenant al-Kasasbeh undermine Jordan's long-term participation in the IS fight?
