part of doesn't continue and doesn't grow. ow reporter: iran's president rouhani called russia's president putin today and, according to the russians, the two leaders agreed the strike td seriously damaged prospects for a political settlement to syria's civil war. the u.s. military has demonstrated over and over its ability to launch strikes that rostroy their targets. but strikes alone almost never accomplish the mission. elaine? >> quijano: david, thank you. our seth doane was in the syrian capital friday night when the missiles struck. on saturday, he checked out the smoldering rubble of the suspected chemical weapons facility in damascus. lonight he has this report from inside syria.
