Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS" on Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET:
On GPS this week: What to make of Mitt Romney’s foreign policy? Following the Republican presidential candidate’s big foreign policy speech this week, Fareed convenes a panel of experts to discuss democracy in the Arab world, America’s influence around the globe and whether U.S. conservatives are divided. On this week’s panel are: Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens, American Enterprise Institute scholar Danielle Pletka, former New York Times executive editor Bill Keller and commentator Kishore Mahbubani.
Also on the show, Fareed discusses the back story to Argo, the Hollywood telling of how a handful of Americans escaped Tehran during the 1979 hostage crisis, with former CIA officer and operation mastermind Antonio Mendez.
Finally, how America came to terms with death. More than 600,000 Americans were killed in the Civil War. Harvard historian Drew Faust and filmmaker Ric Burns discuss a new PBS documentary that shows how those deaths today explain an important part of America’s national identity.
