Episode Guide »
The Ethics of Whistle-Blowing - Edward Snowden remains in Moscow avoiding prosecution in the U.S. for making public a vast amount of classified data revealing the extent of the National Security Agency's surveillance operations, around the world and in the U.S. Lucky Severson reports on the ongoing debate about the morality of his actions: Was what Snowden did wrong because it hurts national security? Or was he right to make public what he saw as the government's massive invasion of privacy? Jordan, the Other Holy Land - Jordan's King Abdullah is in the US this week for a summit with President Obama on the Middle East peace process and the Syrian refugee crisis. Jordan is predominantly Muslim but has long had a vibrant Christian presence. In recent years, the number of Christians there has dropped dramatically, just as it has in many other parts of the Middle East. Kim Lawton reports from Jordan on the situation for Jordanian Christians, who say that like their neighbors Israel and the West Bank, they too should be considered part of the Holy Land.
