Hosted by

The intervention in Libya shows President Obama pulled in a multitude of different directions. Is there now an "Obama Doctrine" in the Middle East? What are the implications for US policy toward the rest of the world? Also, Yemen's president clings to power, and a federal appeals court approves what angry opponents call "the right to lie."
