Host Scott Simon talks with Stephen Flanagan, senior vice president and Henry A. Kissinger Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, about NATO's engagement in Libya, the disagreement among allies over the level of engagement and calls from Britain and France to intensify strikes against Gadhafi's forces.
