On GPS Sunday: An exclusive interview with Bill Clinton

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

This Sunday on GPS: An exclusive one-on-one interview with Bill Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States.

In a wide-ranging discussion, Clinton talks with Fareed about President Barack Obama's options over Syria, the U.S. economy, the NSA spying controversy, the decision over who will be the next chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve, the state of the Democratic Party, the Clinton Foundation, and whether Hillary Clinton might run for president.

“I supported two years ago the proposal that Hillary and Secretary Panetta and then CIA director, General Petraeus, made to give more robust armed support to the Syrians. But I well understood why the president was reluctant to do it because, as you see in Libya, there’s still lots of militia groups there who like America,” Clinton says.

“On the day our ambassador and the other State Department employee were killed in Benghazi, the ambassador was still the most popular foreigner in Libya. Libyan citizens marched on the headquarters unarmed of two of these militia groups and forced them to disarm. But it’s chaotic.”

All that, plus: Fareed's take on the two other big issues of the week – what to make of Iran’s diplomatic overtures, and the upcoming elections in Germany.

    I watched the interview this Sunday and I must say that President Billl Clinton has really aged in this past year and I think he's having delusions of grandeur if he thinks his daughter could run for president in the future. I'm having trouble picturing his wife as President of the USA never the less his daughter Chelsea.

    America is the root of all terror. America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.
    In 1953 America overthrow Iran's democratic government Mohammad Mosaddegh and installed a brutal dictator Shah. America helped Shah of Iran to establish secret police and killed thousands of Iranian people.
    During Iran-Iraq war evil America supported Suddam Hossain and killed millions of Iranian people. In 1989, America, is the only country ever, shot down Iran's civilian air plane, killing 290 people.
    In 2003,America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and 4,000,000+ Iraqi people were displaced.
    Now America is a failed state with huge debt. Its debt will be 22 trillion by 2015.
