On GPS Sunday: 1-on-1 interviews with Timothy Geithner and Richard Clarke

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

On GPS this Sunday: Fareed offers his take on India's election before speaking with former U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on the Obama administration's response to the global financial crisis, and his new book, Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises.

And...drones. The United States still uses them in many places around the world, but now it seems everybody has a drone. Fareed speaks with former counter-terrorism official Richard Clarke on the frightening future of the robotic killing machines.

“If you're going after a group that's basically a drug cartel, then perhaps you can use drones and other things and the people won't hate you for it,” Clarke says. “But if you're perceived to be going after religious leaders with drones, then that's a problem.”

Also, in the internet age, is there something you wish you could hide?  Well, you're in luck.  At least if you live in the European Union. Fareed will explain – and discuss the conflict with freedom of speech.

And, is China becoming more nationalist? More capitalist? More democratic? What do the people of China really want? Evan Osnos of the New Yorker shares his thoughts.

Finally: In our Last Look segment we investigate the popularity of different languages across the United States. Here's a link to the Slate article we mention.

    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.

      Humour is good, and like Zak says it's ok to be "lively". So I'm just trying to stay within context and avoid ever having to make any reply to those types. Best advice, don't anyone feed the trolls and they'll eventually starve out.

    I wish a socialist party had won in India, but in any event if the BJP only got 31% of votes, it should only get 31% of seats. How can this ethically be called a 'majority?' Not enough democracy – bit of a farce.

      @ Boudica:
      You don't really want a socialist party to win an election, do you?
      What a dreary world this would be, with socialists governing too many places!

    Scientists first believed they had successfully cloned a Palin voter. But upon further investigation, it was just an amoeba.

    Tim Geithner gave a weak defense for what he and O'Bama did to Main Street in their decision to bail out the bankers. Shame on them. Geithner mentions the 25% unemployment during the Great Depression 80+ years ago, which he didn't want to foist on the American workers. Well, he did anyway. That is what our unemployment rate is now (2014) when you consider those of us who have given up ever getting work again. Our economy is very weak and only the bankers/Wall Street are doing well. With all the wealth available, why can't underwater homeowners be helped in some way? HAMP doesn't help most of us.

    Really? And it was GWB who bailed out the bankers btw! Obama's bailouts started with the auto industry, and HE had the good sense to ensure they had to account for that money and pay it back!

    Zakaria is nothing more than a salesperson from an Indian flee market. He pretends having knowledge in every field but in fact just tells the audience what they want to hear in order to push his merchandise through. He is not a professional journalist but is a screw in the propaganda machine.
