Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad broke his promise to withdraw troops from major cities today. The U.N. cease-fire proposal was negotiated with the help of Kofi Annan two weeks ago.
Instead, deadly attacks at the hands of government forces have escalated in the past few days. Senators McCain and Lieberman say they no longer believe a diplomatic solution will end the massacre. They spoke with Anderson Cooper from a Syrian refugee camp in Turkey.
"I think it's very obvious they've been played," said Sen. McCain when asked if al-Assad has deceived the U.N. Sen. Lieberman brought up the option of providing weapons to the activists. "They're running out of ammunition. They don't have bullets and they’re being fired at every day so I think the answer is that we've got to arm the Syrian opposition," he said.
