The Death of Moammar Gadhafi

Hosted by  • 

Libyans danced in the streets today, celebrating the death of a tyrant brought down by his own people with help from the US and NATO. Despite a bloody history and support for terror, Gadhafi had an up and down relationship with the United States. What's next for an oil rich country divided by tribal and sectarian rivalries, where the potential outcomes range from democracy to civil war? Also, as the Super Committee on debt works toward spending reductions, a major surprise. The farm lobby says it'll give up $5 billion in subsidies. Is that for real or will the 'American Boondoggle' continue?
