Clouds gather despite Saudi Arabia's growing influence

There are rumors of a succession struggle within the Saudi royal family. The country is a primary player in regional issues like ISIS, the Yemen civil war, Iraq and Syria. We’ll talk about the potential for inner turmoil in Saudi Arabia, the country’s growing influence in the Middle East and other regional affairs with Robert Jordan, former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia under President George W. Bush. Jordan is author of the new book, 'Desert Diplomat: Inside Saudi Arabia Following 9/11'. (Photo: Flickr/Ash Carter)
