Political Leader of Libyan Rebels Looks for Support

Mahmoud Jibril, interim prime minister of the Transitional National Council of the Libyan Republic, is making the rounds in Washington this week. He's asking the U.S. to officially recognize the council as the sole legitimate representative of the Libyan people. He also wants the U.S. to give the rebels assets it's frozen from the Gadhafi regime. Robert Siegel talks with Jibril about his visit.
