In this week's Washington Report, David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for the New York Times, speaks to Kerry Nolan about the Palestinian push for statehood membership at the United Nations. As the U.N. General Assembly continues this week, President Obama says that the United states will veto the resolution. Sanger weighs in on what happens then and how the Palestinians are likely to react. He also weighs in on Afghanistan and Texas Governor Rick Perry's presidential campaign.
