Bill Ritter talks with Long Island Congressman Peter King and security expert Nick Casale. (WABC)

The humanitarian crisis affecting millions of Syrians has, like so much of our political discourse these days, turned into a vitriolic discussion.

This week the search for calm and rational thinking as we talk with Republican Congressman Peter King, a member of the Homeland Security Committee and Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Counter-Terrorism.

He joins us from his office in Massapequa Park on Long Island.

From the political angles to the law enforcement considerations, we are also joined by our security consultant Nick Casale, a former detective with the NYPD and counter-terrorism expert with the MTA.

The last time New York City was attacked, Sept. 11, 2001, one of the men who helped pull us out of an emotional whirlwind is our guest this week: Rev. Calvin Butts of Abyssinian Baptist Church in Herlem.
