Tens of thousands of protesters gathered again today in Cairo's Tahrir Square.  Yesterday, the country's interim government offered its resignation following several days of violent protests against the country’s military leaders.  Now the ruling military council has agreed to create a new civilian cabinet.  We'll discuss the latest political upheaval with Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Chicago chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations. Also, earlier this month a quietly reported conviction ended a five-year sting operation that netted one of the world’s most notorious arms dealers, Viktor Bout. We talk to Kathi Lynn Austin, director of the Conflict Awareness Project.  She's been tracking Bout for 15 years.
