Burial of Gadhafi Delayed amid Questions over Final Moments The American leader of NATO, Admiral James Stavridis, used Facebook today to tell the world he'll recommend the end of the NATO mission in Libya. Meantime, Moammar Gadhafi is dead, but not yet buried, despite Islamic tradition. His body lies in a refrigerator in Misurata. Was he killed in "crossfire" between opposing forces or executed by rebels using his own "golden handgun?" The UN human rights office wants to investigate the way in which he was killed. Mary Beth Sheridan is reporting from Tripoli for the Washington Post .
The Death of Moammar Gadhafi The dictator who terrorized Libya for 42 years was killed today, shot while trying to escape rebel forces in his hometown of Sirte. Since rebel forces deposed Moammar Gadhafi two months ago, he’s been on the run. Today, al Jazeera TV aired gruesome footage of armed men dragging a wounded, bloody person said to be Gadhafi. A separate clip showed his half-naked corpse, apparently shot in the head. When the Transitional National Council confirmed that he was dead, Libyans danced in the streets. We hear reaction from Tripoli, Tunesia, Qattar and Washington, DC.
The Death of Moammar Gadhafi Since rebel forces deposed Moammar Gadhafi two months ago, he's been on the run. Today, al Jazeera TV aired gruesome footage of armed men dragging a wounded and bloody person said to be Gadhafi in his hometown of Sirte. Although much of the world has already recognized the Transitional National Council as Libya's new government, even with the death today of the mercurial leader, Libya is not a unified country. What's next for an oil-rich nation divided by tribal and sectarian rivalries, where the potential outcomes range from democracy to civil war?
Arizona Law Hot Topic at Obama - Calderon Presser At the White House today with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, President Obama called Arizona’s immigration law “misdirected,” and said it’s the federal government’s responsibility to pass what he calls “comprehensive immigration reform.” He said that could happen - but that times have changed since Republican John McCain and the late Democrat Ted Kennedy helped move such a bill in the Senate
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
