On GPS Sunday: Former CIA chief Michael Hayden and Google's Eric Schmidt

"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this Sunday, what are intelligence agencies doing to keep America safe? Fareed speaks to a man who would know: Michael Hayden has served as director of both the CIA and the National Security Agency.

Also, terror and technology: does the internet help keep us safe, or does it enable terrorists? Google’s Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt explains why the Internet is a force for good, about his recent visit to North Korea, and how he hopes the Internet will lead to change from within.

“The whole country is organized around a single belief system and you're taught from birth that this is the way,” Schmidt says. “If the Internet shows up, they might say, hey, maybe there’s an alternative way of running our country, maybe the supreme leader is not quite so good, maybe my conditions are not perfect, maybe my country is not the only choice. And the system will unravel from within.”

And a 1-on-1 interview with director Mira Nair. Her new film The Reluctant Fundamentalist tells the story of a young Pakistani who comes to America with great dreams, only to become disillusioned by the U.S. What can we learn from his story?

    We are blessed to have a serious man like Michael Hayden speak so clearly about the balance of liberty and tyranny.
