Hosted by

Saudi Arabia and the US have different views about the so-called "Arab Spring." While the US encourages democracy, the Saudis are helping Sunni autocrats stay in power.  Is a 50-year-old alliance on shaky ground? Is each adapting in its own way to changes neither one can control? Also, the World Health Organization on cell phones and cancer, and Germany -- Europe's industrial powerhouse --wants to abandon nuclear power.
