Three Middle East experts from a variety of perspectives discuss the violence in Libya and the protests throughout the "Arab Spring" countries and what they mean for the future of the region.
Brian Katulis from the Center for American Progress, Hisham Melhem from the Al Arabiya News Channel, and Danielle Pletka from the American Enterprise Institute focus on what the protests and reactions to them might indicate about the volatile region.
The protests and violence broke out on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but it is unclear whether the date played any role in the events. Protesters are pointing to a film that is highly critical of the Muslim prophet Mohammad, a clip of which was recently translated into Arabic. The Islamic faith believes that any depictions of the prophet are offensive, regardless of their tone.
