Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN
On GPS this Sunday: Fareed starts with the prisoner swap for Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl...and the firestorm it has produced. He convenes a panel to talk about the issues that the case has brought to the fore – what is a human life worth? And what about when that human is an American soldier?
Then, what is it like to be held by the Taliban? What goes on in the heads of the Taliban foot soldiers? Fareed speaks with David Rohde, who was held by the Taliban in Afghanistan for more than seven months.
“[P]eople have asked me maybe what is Bergdahl going through,” Rhode says. “And the first few days, I remember being worried that I would wake up, you know before I went to bed – the first night I was on the air base in Bagram – that I would wake up the next morning and it would all be a dream.”
Also, why one of the most important cases before the Supreme Court is about...teeth whitening.
Then, the consequences of global warming may seem far off for many. But the president of the island nation of Kiribati is already having to figure out how to stop his country from literally sinking.
And, white, black, Asian – we're all the same, aren’t we? Nicholas Wade, author of the controversial new book A Troublesome Inheritance, suggests very rapid and very recent human evolution has led to genuine differences between racial or ethnic regional groupings of people.
