NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Democratic California Rep. Tom Lantos, who recently met with Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi. Lantos says Gaddafi's decision to embrace the international community was influenced by his son, his intelligence chief and his cabinet members. Lantos says he thinks what happened to Saddam Hussein made an impression on Gaddafi — and that the Libyan leader fears he might be next in line.
