What the U.S. hopes to achieve with airstrikes against Iran-backed militias

The U.S. is responding to last weekend’s drone strike in Jordan that killed three U.S. troops with airstrikes against Iran-backed militias in the Middle East.

Joe Buccino, a retired U.S. Army colonel, joins John Yang to discuss the strikes.
