New Era for Libya
A new era for the people of Libya appears to be close at hand. The showdown between the NATO-backed rebels and the forces of Colonel Moammar Gadhafi quickly escalated over the weekend. Rebels burst into Tripoli from three directions and took control of the capital. But pockets of resistance remain. Last night President Obama said the momentum against the Gadhafi regime had reached "the tipping point." He said the U.S. will be in close coordination with the rebel leadership to help ensure a peaceful transition to democracy. Diane and a panel of analysts will discuss the latest developments in Libya and what lies ahead for the nation and its people.
