Worldview delves into the foreign policy dimensions of President Obama’s State of the Union address with Uri Friedman. He's associate editor at Foreign Policy. Also, Wael Ghonim has been called the “Facebook freedom fighter” and “the man behind the revolution.” To mark the one-year anniversary of Egypt’s uprising, Worldview talks to Wael. The activist and former Google executive is credited with jump-starting the fall of Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s 30-year dictator, and creating momentum that spread across the Arab world. His new memoir is Revolution 2.0: The Power of the People is Greater than the People in Power. Ahmed Rehab, executive director of Chicago’s Council on American-Islamic Relations, will also join the conversation.
