The Middle East remains in turmoil as Israeli troops continue to occupy Lebanon and terrorists attack the U.S. Embassy in Damascus.
On this edition, foreign correspondent Reese Erlich presents a one-on-one interview with Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. The President explains how Syria had been cooperating with the U.S. in fighting terrorism, but stopped when the U.S. tried to overthrow Assad’s government.
Erlich also provides a background report about Syria’s important role in any eventual Middle East peace.
