BY MOLLY BOLAND You're watching multisource US video news analysis from Newsy. One group in Mississippi is causing serious southern struggle over license plates designs. “The Mississippi division of Sons of Confederate Veterans wants to issue a series of plates to mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. The Huffington Post reports that one of those plates would be dedicated to confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest.” (WLS) So what’s the big idea you ask? According to The Stir... “...the battles Forrest fought still scar the country today... The guy was fighting to preserve slavery.” Oh, but that’s not all. He was also... “Grand Wizard in the Ku Klux Klan” (RT) “An early leader of the Ku Klux Klan” (WLS) “...grand master for the KKK?” “Grand Wizard, yeah” (KCBS) Examiner has the response of the president of the Mississippi NAACP who calls Forrest the leader of a “terrorist group.” "He should be viewed in the same light that we view Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden... The state ... should deny any vanity tags which would highlight racial hatred in this state." But The Wall Street Journal reports fans of Forrest just don’t see him that way. “To his supporters, the general is recognized as an expert cavalryman and hero whose war-fighting techniques were ahead of his time.” One supporter told the Journal, “Forrest cut ties with the Klan and deserves to be redeemed.” Still, many are saying the general’s change of heart was too little too late Those opposed to the plates formed a Facebook page titled, “Mississippians Against The Commemoration Of Grand Wizard Nathan Forrest.” “We are united in sending a message to the state government of Mississippi that WE WILL NOT STAND for the public glorification of one of the original leaders of the Ku Klux Klan” According to ABC News the Mississippi NAACP plans to send a letter to state’s governor asking him to stop the proposal. The plate’s design won’t be released for a few more years and Mississippi’s legislature will vote on the proposal in 2014. But let us know what you think.

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In world news — an update on Libya, where fierce fighting between rebels and Muammar Gaddafi’s forces continue to bring the country closer to a full-scale civil war. Sources including the Wall Street Journal say Gaddafi’s attacks on a rebel-held town over the weekend failed to win the government much ground — signifying the likelihood of a prolonged battle in the country. Meanwhile the UN has appointed a special envoy to Libya — Jordan’s former foreign minister -- to assess the situation. Still in world news — U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates arrived in Afghanistan earlier today on surprise visit. On Gates’ agenda is a meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and evaluating the number of U.S. troops to withdraw in July. The New York Times reports, American commanders are mixed on the current situation on the ground in Afghanistan. Improvements were made in some of the nation’s southern provinces, though security in the east and north is still worsening. Gates’s visit comes as Karzai voiced criticism against American forces for the accidental killing of nine Afghan children last Tuesday. In science news -- Human-kind might not be alone. One NASA scientist claims to have discovered the fossil remains of extra terrestrial bacteria in a rare meteorite. The scientist is Dr. Richard B. Hoover, who for more than ten years has collected meteorites from around the world. Fox News gained an exclusive look at the out-of-this-world research which is set to be published in March’s Journal of Cosmology. The organism is closely related to bacteria under our own feet on Earth and Hoover says there might be more on comets, moons, and other celestial bodies. Fox asked other scientists to weigh in -- almost all of whom said they’ve seen it before and most scientists would claim his discovery -- impossible. Until the scientific community can prove otherwise, the findings will be considered “a potential signature of life.” In entertainment -- Lindsay Lohan’s recent brush with the law led to charges of felony grand theft -- but now the case is being called into question. The actress and her lawyer insist she never stole the $2,500 necklace. Still don’t believe her? Entertainment Tonight has exclusive surveillance video from the jewelry store in Venice Beach. Of course -- you’ll have to wait to see it. The show will air Monday night. ET admits there’s not much to see except LiLo trying on the jewelry. Sources tell TMZ the Mean Girls star feels she will be “vindicated” by the report. Lohan insists the store was trying to make a a quick buck off of her rap sheet.

BY CHRISTINA HARTMAN ANCHOR CHANCE SEALES He defied international calls to cede power during a bloody four-month standoff. But now Ivory Coast Incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo has been captured. The rebel opposition -- with support from French and UN forces -- launched an assault on the embattled leader’s residence in Abijan. (VIDEO FROM BFM TV) CNN’s Zain Vergee reports - 500 people have been killed and one million internally displaced since Gbagbo refused to relinquish power four months ago. “Lauren Gbagbo was holding the country hostage. He had refused to leave and admit he lost an election back in November. So what happened is the country has deteriorated into civil war. ... It means that Gbagbo, if arrested, will probably be tried in Ivory Coast. There was a lot of discussion as to whether he would go into exile...” The BBC’s Mark Doyle looks at what Gbagbo’s arrest means for Ivory Coast - and says - it’s hard to predict whether it will stabilize the war-torn country. “...perhaps the model to be followed will be here in neighbouring Liberia - where a decade of violent ethnic balkanisation is only now beginning to be resolved. The coming days and months are likely to be perilous for civilians as possible reprisal attacks take place.” The internationally-recognized President - Alissane Ouattara - is widely expected to face some opposition - as Gbagbo accused him of being a foreigner - an attack that has proven powerful in the south. That’s why France 24’s Nathan King reports from UN headquarters - the UN isn’t ready to call this a victory yet. “It may be the end of the beginning but no the beginning of the end. ... There is still a crisis going on in Ivory Coast. they are going to be focusing on basically making sure the violence subsides. There may be pockets of resistance, but they want to continue to take away heavy weapons. ... Huge amounts of ethnic tension, and of course there have been atrocities as well. Those have to be investigated.” Britain’s Foreign Minister emphasized Gbagbo should be treated with “respect” despite allegations of war crimes against civilians. And the scrutiny is expected to be leveled at pro-Ouattara forces as well - who stand accused of raping and killing civilians.

ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY BY DAN CORNFIELD You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy The fighting between rebels and pro-government forces in Libya moved into its third month with no major advances. The battle for control of the country is now widely described as a stalemate, but BBC’s Jon Leyne reports that despite NATO involvement and air strikes, the ground war rages on. Leyne- This is urban warfare of the nastiest kind... on the one hand you have the rebels fighting the government and on the other government forces appear to be randomly shelling and using sniper fire in civilian areas. Rebel forces continue to hold the port city of Misrata', but are under constant fire. CNN’s Fred Pleitgen explains the mentality among Gadhafi’s forces as they continue to shell the port city. Pleitgen- At this point in time, they don’t feel very much threatened by the rebels, they also don’t feel very much threatened by NATO. They feel that they also have a lot of reserves in their military. One of the interesting things they’ve told me is that of course Libya has military reserves like any other country, they haven’t called those up yet. So it looks like stalemate really is the right word in all of this. There is very little movement on the front. France has said NATO is not doing enough while Great Britain urges the United States to increase its air support of the rebels. According to the Wall Street Journal, the ongoing stalemate is good for Gadhafi. “As the conflict drags on, Gadhafi is playing for a stalemate that leaves him in control of Tripoli and other coastal cities, buying time to fight another day. The Gadhafis last week put forward a peace entreaty... The opposition Transitional National Council rejected this laughable plan outright, but one of these days the rebels may be pressured to strike a deal.” Some governments including Qatar and Italy support the supply of arms to the rebels. Maj. General Bob Scales (Ret.) tells Fox News that unless the rebels regain momentum, Gadhafi could wipe out the rebel forces. Scales- “From a military perspective it’s a stalemate. Now we haven’t talked about the psychological impact, the economic and the political pressure on Gadhafi, but if you look at strictly from what we military guys call ground truth, its clearly at best a stalemate or sadly it may very well be shifting over to Gadhafi’s favor.” Stalemate could lead to a long-term civil war. The Christian Science Monitor points out a stalemate could be the worst possible outcome. “A divided Libya with Qaddafi holding on in Tripoli sends shudders down the spine. Entrenched civil war would likely only continue, opening the door to regional instability. The United States warns of another Somalia in the making, a failed state of lawlessness and chaos that serves as a launching pad for pirates and terrorists.” Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY BLAKE HANSON A U.S. drone strike could deal a major blow to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Penninsula. The strike reportedly killed six militants. Fox News has more details. “One of the dead is reportedly the son of the man you’re looking at there, that is Anwar al-Awlaki. He’s the Al-Qaeda cleric who was killed in a drone strike last month. Al-Qaeda’s media chief in Yemen was also reportedly killed in yesterday’s air strike, which occurred in the Shabwa province.” Back in June, the New York Times reported the Obama administration was upping their use of airstrikes against militants in Yemen. With the country in turmoil, CBS reports the strikes are a favored tactic. “The airstrike late Friday in the southeastern province of Shabwa points to Washington's growing use of drones to target al Qaeda militants in Yemen. … Security officials said the drone strike was one of five carried out overnight by American drones on suspected al Qaeda positions ... in Yemen's largely lawless south.” But self-described conservative blog American Thinker says these high-profile strikes could actually be a sign of the militants’ success in Yemen’s civil war. “...more worrisome - the fact that we've been successful means that AQAP leadership feels emboldened enough to show themselves in relatively exposed areas. This is a result of the continuing civil war in Yemen and a resulting breakdown in law and order that has allowed AQAP to make advances in towns and villages previously not open to them.” So will this recent drone strike have a significant impact on the war on terror? NPR talks with an expert who says -- getting rid of the leaders might not play a big role. “What I found is that certain types of organizations tend to be very resilient to having their leaders removed, so, large organizations, particularly older organizations, certain types of organizations. So religious groups and separatist groups tend to be the most resilient, with religious groups really being the most resilient.”
