"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this Sunday: Former CIA and NSA chief Michael Hayden discusses the revelations of Edward Snowden, what the NSA is really doing with our phone calls, and the possible diplomatic and operational fallout.
Next, the New Yorker’s John Cassidy and Jeffrey Toobin debate the question many across the globe are discussing now – is Snowden the hero or the villain in this whole controversy?
Also, a look at the turmoil in Turkey and the general sense of unrest that still exists around the Middle East. Fareed sits down with columnist Mona Eltahawy and Steven Cook of the Council on Foreign Relations.
And Fareed speaks with Jeffrey Sachs, the director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and the author of a new book, To Move the World: JFK's Quest for Peace, about the lessons of John F. Kennedy’s presidency.
“You know, the experts of the day talked about mutual assured destruction, or MAD, as it was called by its acronym,” Sachs says. “And it was a bit mad, that the idea that there was a balance of terror that kept the peace. But Kennedy realized – and Khrushchev also realized – this wasn't a balance, it was an imbalance. It was a set of accidents waiting to destroy the world.”
And we’ll also take a look at why in the world China is thinking of building a canal…in Nicaragua…and why the U.S. may be woefully unprepared for it.
