Here's what is on tap for Thursday:

"FOX & Friends First"

The United Nations, still reeling from the Oil-for-Food scandal, faces accusations that some of its peacekeepers stationed in Africa are sexually abused those they were sent to protect. We'll get reaction from Michelle Malkin, syndicated columnist, FOX News contributor and author of "Invasion."

Plus, what turned a former atheist onto a new path? We'll ask Lee Strobel, award-winning journalist and author of "The Case for a Creator."

"FOX & Friends"
Starts at 7 a.m. ET

Can we diffuse Iran and Syria's unholy alliance diplomatically? We'll ask Bill Kristol, FOX News contributor and editor of The Weekly Standard.

Three CBS producers fired for the controversial "memo-gate" scandal have lawyered up and are preparing a case against the network. How will CBS respond? We'll ask Joe Hagan, TV columnist for The New York Observer.
