The Fall of Tripoli: Is This the End of the Gadhafi Regime?

Hosted by

Libyan rebel forces moved with surprising swiftness over the weekend and claimed control over most of Tripoli. After more than four decades, Gadhafi's regime finally appears to be ending. On this rebroadcast of today's To the Point, guest host Sara Terry looks at the prospects for a democratic regime. What sort of justice will the rebels mete to Gadhafi, whose whereabouts are currently unknown? How should the West respond? Also, remembering Martin Luther King, Jr. Twenty-five years in the making, a memorial to him finally opens on the Washington Mall.
