Watch GPS: Henry Kissinger, David Ignatius and a feisty panel

First, a feisty debate on the race to the White House in 2012. How are the Republican candidates shaping up? Why is America so polarized? Can the two sides find common ground on what to do about the deficit? On what to do about unemployment? On what to do about anything?

We have an all-star GPS panel from the left and the right. Joining us will be the host of CNN’s “In the Arena”, Eliot Spitzer; conservative commentator Ann Coulter; Reuters Global Editor-at-Large Chrystia Freeland; and the British historian Andrew Roberts.

Later, one-on-one with the man who made his first secret trip to Beijing almost exactly forty years ago to normalize American relations with China. Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, the author of a new book On China.

Would he have ever imagined at the time - four decades ago - that China would be where it is now? What does the U.S. still not understand about how to deal with China? And is Obama’s foreign policy, as some have claimed, truly Nixonian/Kissingerian? Fareed speaks to the one man every single American President in the last five decades has sought out for advice.

Also, a fascinating look inside the secret world of spies. Washington Post columnist David Ignatius has spent a lifetime covering the most important stories of our times. He has sources all the way to the top of the CIA, MI-6, and Pakistan's ISI.

But he can't write everything in his columns. So he also writes fiction. His new novel Bloodmoney weaves a frantic story spanning the worlds of the CIA and the mysterious ISI.  Where does fact end and fiction begin? All the things you've ever wanted to know about the world of spooks, right here.

Tune in this Sunday at 10am ET/PT.

    I'm a bit behind on commenting as I record your show and am only just watching the June 12th episode. Except for Christiane Amanpour and yourself I see no other TV news personalities that have shows which are truly produced for those seeking knowledge and not spectacle. While I will not resort to hyperbole and state that you have lost me as a viewer, I still felt the need to track down this blog and express my actual disgust in your selection of two personalities who should not have been invited due to their lack of credibility. I'm neither a Democrat nor a Republican, and enjoy your having knowledgeable guests that are eager to take part in reasonable discussions. Ann Coulter was a horrible choice for your show, as was Elliot Spitzer. While the latter had at one point been credible he is no more deserving nor desirable of a guest for your round-table. I hope that your staff see all of these comments and respond accordingly with future guest selection so that GPS can remain a news show and not degenerate into a sideshow.

    I waited a couple of weeks to let my feelings settle. Boy am I impressed to see that there are so many in agreement with me about Ann Coulter specificaly, and the unwieldy panel in general. Coulter's lack of civility did her message, and GPS' aura, a disservice. Farid's inablility to manage the group (frequent shouting over each other?) showed what he needs to master if he's to attempt a panel again. Thankfully, he has not since then. The program is gold; please don't make it crude.
