Tune in with your host, managing editor William Kern as we examine:

-- News from Britain's Guardian that the NSA has been collecting the phone/email/text/user data for almost all Americans and many others for at least seven years

-- Coverage from China, Britain and Switzerland of the start of talks between President Obama and Chinese President Xi, and Michelle Obama's decision not to come

-- Coverage from the Persian Gulf of Iraqi claims that after being occupied by the United States for close to a decade to deprive it of WMDs, Baghdad has chemical weapons, and that al-Qaeda has been plotting to steal them for export to the U.S. and Europe

-- Iran's surprising public admission ahead of presidential elections, that unelected Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei makes all decisions of importance, and that whoever is elected president will have no influence over that nation's nuclear program

-- Argentina coverage of charges by an Argentine public prosecutor that Iran has been building a South American spy network for years, which was used in the 1994 bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association, in which 85 people were killed.

-- Self-loathing from Nigeria, after President Obama decided not to visit the country on his second tour of Africa as president

We'll also look at reaction from Hong Kong's South China Morning Post about Michael Douglas' claim that he came down with throat cancer as a result of oral sex with his wife; British coverage of the annual Bilderberg conference; and Michelle Obama's decision not to come to a key summit with China's first couple in California, which is likely to be interprested as as nube by Beijing.
