If the Gadhafi regime falls, who will assume power in Libya? Fouad Ajami weighs in

Many challenges will face the Transitional National Council in a post-Gadhafi Libya, ranging from tribal rivalries and an east-west divide, to a shattered economy and a lack of coherent rebel leadership.

In light of this, the council has produced a blueprint to guide the country through the aftermath of Gadhafi's downfall, intended to lay the groundwork for a democratic political process.

Today on American Morning, Fouad Ajami, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, weighs in on who will be running the country if Gadhafi falls and discusses what the United States knows about the rebel forces that have been fighting to overthrow the dictator.

Sara Sidner also joins the conversation to report breaking news from Tripoli, where the situation within the city was becoming increasingly tense during the broadcast.
