In case you missed it, Charlie Rose sat down with embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad to discuss the Syrian civil war, pressure from the international community and the use of chemical weapons.
Rose pressed continuously on the issue of chemical weapons and their implications only to be rebuffed by Assad who took issue with the accusation that Syria used chemical weapons or even has them. The conversation is rather long and goes in circles, but gives a small view into the Assad regime’s mode of thinking.
For example, Assad continued to call the rebel groups terrorists when answering Rose’s questions. It illustrates how framing can completely change a story.
