Assad tells ABC he didn't order crackdown

How's this for disingenuous? In an interview with ABC's Barbara Walters, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad claims he didn't order the crackdown on his people and that the Syrian army are not his forces.

Let's go to the videotape.

The White House says that Assad is 'not credible.'
"It is just not credible," White House spokesman Jay Carney said, asked about an ABC television interview Assad gave where he said only a "crazy" leader kills his own people.

"The world has witnessed what has happened in Syria. The United States and many, many other nations around the world who have come together to condemn the atrocious violence in Syria perpetrated by the Assad regime know exactly what's happening and who is responsible," he said. "I don't think anybody who watched that interview would find Mr. Assad's answers credible."
But the Obama administration will do nothing to stop the killing. They are leading from behind. What could go wrong?
