With Jane Clayson in for Tom Ashbrook
We’re following latest developments out of Libya and reports that Colonel Gadhafi has been killed or captured.
It’s a chaotic situation on the ground today in Libya. A swirl of unconfirmed reports burst onto the live news channels early this morning –Gadhafi captured, Gadhafi injured, Gadhafi killed—and they’ve slowly coalesced into one big story.
The long-running regime of Colonel Moammar Gadhafi is over. One more domino in the Arab Spring has fallen. A long bloody uprising later, a NATO mini-war later, and the oil-rich country has a shot at a fresh start.
This hour On Point: The fall of Gadhafi.
