Unconfirmed reports out of Libya this morning say Col. Moammar Gadhafi is dead, bringing an official end to his four decades of brutal rule. Gadhafi has been missing since Tripoli fell to rebel fighters on August 21. Ibrahim Bayu, a Libyan citizen, joins the program from the road to Mistara, where celebrations are breaking out all around him.
