Charlie Rose Interviews Bashar al-Assad
Charlie Rose has recorded an interview in Damascus with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which will air in its entirety in a special presentation on WCVE PBS/WHTJ PBS tonight (Monday, September 9) at 9:00 p.m. In the interview, Charlie Rose asks Assad about the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
Rose said Sunday on the “CBS Evening News” that the Syrian dictator was “remarkably calm” during the interview as he addressed the claims that he had gassed his own people. It is the first interview the Syrian president has given to an American network in nearly two years. The interview with Assad airs one night before President Obama is scheduled to address the nation on his plans to respond to the situation in Syria.
