U.S. Response to Upheaval in Libya
A short audio clip of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan on March 30, 1981 from the website of the United States Secret Service was played at the end of the program.
Frank Gaffney talked about his views on how the U.S. should respond to the situation in Libya and the challenge that Libyans are mounting against Colonel Moammar Gadhafi’s rule. Other topics included the pros and cons of U.S. military intervention in the region, and what actions multi-national organizations like NATO and the UN should take in Libya. He also responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.
