President Bashar al-Assad offers up "amnesty" to protesters in Syria. (1:26)

WITH ROMNEY.

ALL RIGHT, NOW-- YEMEN'S A

BIT OF A DOWNER.

LET'S TRY AGAIN.

STOP, STOP, STOP, STOP, OW,

OW, OW, STOP, STOP OH.

>> Jon: OH, SYRIA.

DAMMIT.

>> NOW THE UPRISING OF SYRIA

DRAMATIC NEW DEECHLTS

DEVELOPMENTS INCLUDING A

REVERSAL OF THE GOVERNMENT

PRESIDENT BASHAR AL-ASSAD,

THE SYRIAN LEADER SAYING

WILL GRANT AMNESTY TO

PROTESTORS ARRESTED FOR

VARIOUS ALLEGED CRIMES.

>> Jon: WOW.

THAT'S ACTUALLY KIND OF GOOD

NEWS.

ASSAD IS A BRUTAL DICTATOR

AND I DID NOT EXPECT HIM TO

OFFER UP AMNESTY.

>> THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY

AN AMNESTY AS ONE WOULD

UNDERSTAND THE WORLD IN THE

SENSE THAT IT IS NOT A

BLANKET PARDON.

THOSE WHO HAD RECEIVED A

LIFE SENTENCE, FOR EXAMPLE,

WOULD BE IMPRISONED FOR 20

YEARS.

HE WOULD SEE THAT REDUCED TO

SERVING OUT A LIFE SENTENCE.

>> I SEE.

SO I THINK SOMEONE DOESN'T

REALLY KNOW WHAT THE WORD

AMNESTY MEANS.

SLOW DOWN THERE, RAINBOW

BRIGHT, THAT'S GOING TO

LEAVE YOUR RE-ELECTION

CHANCES VULNERABLE TO BEING

SOFT ON CRIME.

I GUESS TO ASSAD SAM NEST

ASH-- ADD NESTY IS JUST THE

RETURN ADDRESS ON ALL THE

JUNK MAIL HE T
