'Why does Assad still think the media will buy that line?'

Why did Bashar al-Assad give that interview to ABC - could it be because they've given him a sympathetic hearing in the past? We also look at how his interview went down in Syria, and if women in Egypt should really be worried by the rise of Islamists.
