Keeping Them Honest tonight, violence continues in Syria— in spite of promises by the Assad regime to stop killing its own people. The massacres continue even as U.N observers have begun arriving in the country to assess the so-called ceasefire. AC360 has new video that appears to show these observers out in the streets of Dara’a today. We also have video that purports to show government sniper fire— on the same day, in the same city.
Last night, we spoke with U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice. She said this about the Assad regime: “They have lied to the international community. They have lied to their own people. And the biggest fabricator of the facts is Assad himself.”
To confirm Ambassador Rice’s statements, tonight we’ll show our interview with a Syrian activist named Zaidoun. During a visit into Homs on Saturday to have a look at the ceasefire for himself, he was almost killed by a government artillery shell. As an eyewitness to the regime’s continuing campaign of bloodshed, he tells Anderson what is really going on. Here's a preview of his story. Tune into AC360, tonight at 8 and 10p.m. ET.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
