Krauthammer’s Take: Assad a Great Liar

by NRO Staff

Syrian President Bashar Assad is an excellent liar, Charles Krauthammer said tonight.

Appearing on Special Report after the Syrian president, Krauthammer hammered Assad as “one of the great liars of all time.”

“He spoke for almost an hour—I don’t think there was a true word in anything he said, including the words ‘and’ and ‘but’,” Krauthammer said.

Krauthammer also took Assad to task for decrying terrorism in his home country after helping to create and maintain al-Qaeda in Iraq.

“So he is getting the blowback of the people he invited and with whom he was completely comfortable, as long as the task was to kill Americans,” Krauthammer said.
