    President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, agree on the need to contain ISIS.   But there is a fundamental disagreement over the means to achieve that end.   Meanwhile, four years of civil war in Syria have claimed the lives of an estimated 250,000 people.

    U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pennsylvania, this week sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, calling for action to deal with refugees and reach a political solution.

    He outlined his concerns and ideas with NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller.
