A Scandal in Housing and Cutbacks in LA's Bus Service

Hosted by

LA's Housing Authority board has fired its highly-paid CEO, who tried to evict tenants when they picketed his home. He calls his firing retaliation against him for asking the board to reimburse excessive expense accounts.  Also, it's been five years since a federal consent decree required Los Angeles' Metro system to reduce fares and provide more buses. Now, Metro's reducing bus service and building trains. We get the latest on LA's ongoing battle over public transit. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, 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?
