Did Al Assad Lie to Charlie Rose?

Bashar+Al+Assad+online-news+it1“It wasn’t a fair match. Assad and Charlie Rose were playing by different rules. Rose was after a truthful admission of what Assad had done – poison gassing his own people. Assad had no intention of admitting the truth, the trick was how to do that without having to lie – never say anything he knew was false, and which could easily be proven to be so. Instead he smothered Rose with every conceivable possible explanation other than the true one, challenging Rose to disprove each one. An impossible task.”

“Only once was Assad forthright – asserting that he would not say whether or not he had poison gas stockpiles.” – Paul Ekman, Ph.D
