Mechanical engineering PhD candidate Issa Hakim is on leave from his studies, and has returned to his native Libya to help the National Transitional Council in its resistance to the rule of dictator Moamar Gadhafi. In mid-April, Issa made a virtual return to campus, via Skype, hosted by the Office of International Affairs and produced by Lehigh Distance Education. Live from the Benghazi headquarters of the resistance, Issa and a translator helped give voice to more than a dozen fellow rebel leaders, from civilian professionals to defected military commanders, and took questions from the assembled audience. The group spoke about the civil war and the effort to oust Gadhafi to some 60 Lehigh students and members of the regional and national media assembled live and via the Skypecast.
