US Ambassador Killed in Libya; Chicago Teachers' Strike

Hosted by

US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens was killed last night when an armed mob attacked and burned the American consulate in Benghazi. It's the first such incident of its kind in 20 years. Also, the Chicago school strike is into its third day, a struggle between education reformers and unionized teachers. We look at the national implications and the possible consequences for the November election.
