Here is a list of all GPS shows to date:
On Fareed Zakaria GPS this Sunday, new and deeply worrying concerns about the safety of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons. An explosive article in the Atlantic makes the case that Pakistan is moving about its nuclear materials in unsecured vans to prevent Washington from swooping on them, a-la the Osama bin Laden raid. But in doing so, those nukes are now more vulnerable to terrorists. Fareed Zakaria gets the story from the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg.
What is Pakistan’s response? As the former President and Army Chief for nearly a decade, Pervez Musharraf is uniquely placed to shed light on these allegations.
All that, plus interviews with billionaire Bill Gates and Education Secretary Arne Duncan on how to fix America’s education system.
