Syrian President Bashar al-Assad called the accusation that he used chemical warfare a "big lie" and said that the U.S. should "expect everything" if they strike in an interview with CBS' Charlie Rose airing tonight.

In the rare-one-on-one interview, Assad mentioned that the retaliation would "not necessarily" be from the government meaning that his own allies could be involved. Iran and Hezbollah could be who he was referring to.
