In this interview, Ali Ahmida (bio here) discusses how the recent civilian revolt began as a reformist movement and quickly transformed into a revolutionary one demanding regime change.

Ahmida concludes by exploring the three possible scenarios in the next phase of Libya`s revolt. Please excuse the low quality audio at the outset of Ali Ahmida`s comments.
