On this FOX News Sunday, we will be focusing in on the threat from North Korean missiles and nuclear weapons.
As the U.S. celebrated Independence Day this week, North Korea launched fireworks of its own. Despite warnings from the U.S. and the rest of the world community, the rogue state shot off multiple missiles, including one that potentially had the range to hit the American west coast. More than a decade of diplomatic moves, including the most recent six-party talks, have done little in deterring the North Koreans from threatening its neighbors with its nuclear and missile arsenal. Will the current multilateral diplomatic approach work or does the U.S. have to directly negotiate with Kim Jong-Il? Also, is there a military option for the U.S. to pursue?
We will focus on where the U.S. goes from here with a leading State Department diplomat and a roundtable of experts. First, we will be joined by Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Nicholas Burns for the latest on the crisis and what we can expect on the diplomatic front this week. We will then assemble our own panel of experts to assess the situation, including Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), former CIA Director James Woolsey, and the former lead state department official for North Korea, Wendy Sherman.
Our FOX News Sunday panel will then provide its analysis of the North Korean situation as well as the latest domestic political developments this week. Our Sunday regulars include: FOX News Managing Editor Brit Hume, Weekly Standard Executive Editor Bill Kristol, NPR Senior National Correspondent Juan Williams and NPR National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson.
Finally, our Power Player this week is in charge of delving into the financial records of many of the nation’s most famous leaders, including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Richard Nixon. You will be surprised by the many interesting revelations.
