As opposition forces assume more control of Libya, U.S. politicians and pundits are scrambling to take credit and place blame. One area that's been unresolved is whether America's involvement in the NATO air campaign has set a precedent for future military intervention. We speak with Louis Fisher, a constitutional scholar, about what the conflict means for the War Powers Act and our Constitution’s present and future. We also hear from a local Libyan-American on what he thinks may come next in Libya. And on our Global Activism segment, we meet preschool teacher, Ziomara Perez, who teaches her students to make a difference in the lives of children in Swaziland.
