Rami Khouri, director of the American University of Beirut’s Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs, discusses events leading up to the ceasefire, and what it means for Gadhafi and the anti-government protests in Libya.

How does your guest know that the majority of Libyan's want Ghadafy out? Why aren't the majority of Libyans on the street protesting for the ouster of Ghadafy?
Western propaganda is what is fueling this anti- Ghadafy hysteria.
