Charlie Rose sat down with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Sunday in Damascus in an interview that will air Monday on PBS and CBS News. It’s al-Assad’s first American TV interview in two years.
Rose called in to Face the Nation on Sunday morning to preview the interview, telling Bob Schieffer that al-Assad denied that he had anything to do with a chemical weapons attack last month.
President Obama will tape six interviews about Syria on Monday with ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and Fox, all of which will also air Monday night.
