Scott Pelley, David Martin, Bill Whitaker, September 25, 2016. 60 Minutes.

Abdullah became king in 1999 on the death of his father who ruled 47 years. King Abdullah II of Jordan sat down with Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes, and discussed how Islamophobia plays into the strategy of Islamic extremists.

Pelley met the 54-year-old at his palace in Amman. He knows ISIS by its Arabic acronym, Daesh.

But whatever you call it, he says the West doesn’t realize it’s in a Third World War.

Scott Pelley, is the Anchor and Managing Editor of CBS Evening News, Correspondent for 60 Minutes. Nicole Young, Amjad Tadros and Katie Kerbstat are the producers.

Part Two: The New Cold War

President Obama’s nuclear strategy says that while the threat of all-out nuclear war is remote, the risk of nuclear attack somewhere in the world has actually increased. 60 Minutes decided to take a close look at how that attack might occur and found both the U.S. and Russia are developing nuclear weapons that make the once unthinkable decision to use them “less difficult.”

Reporting by David Martin.

Part Three: Picasso Portfolio

Pablo Picasso’s former electrician, 77-year-old Pierre Le Guennec and his wife Danielle, came forward with a trove of 271 never-before-seen Picasso pieces. The revelation of the existence of these works stunned the art world and the Picasso heirs. The Le Guennecs say they were a gift from the master. But were they? Whitaker finds a fascinating story befitting a painter who was probably the greatest artist of the 20th Century.

Reporting by Bill Whitaker, 60 Minutes correspondent.
