This holiday weekend will be a busy one at FOX News Sunday. Here’s what we will be covering:
The War on Terror:
The Supreme Court ruled this week that President Bush went against US and international laws and overstepped his authority in ordering military tribunals for Guantanamo Bay prisoners. What will the decision mean for the more than 450 detainees currently being held in the military facility, as well as the future of the controversial prison? Also, how will it affect the nation’s future ability to wage the war on terrorism? As Congress begins its holiday recess, we will discuss the impact of the ruling, the war in Iraq as well as the latest domestic developments this week with two key members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Jack Reed (R-RI).
Space Shuttle Launch:
NASA is set to launch Space Shuttle Discovery this weekend for the first time in almost a year in a mission that could determine the future of the program. At the final run through, the top safety and engineering officials said it is still too dangerous to launch. But NASA’s top administrator overruled them. We will discuss the decision, safety concerns and what’s next for the nation’s manned space flight program with NASA Administrator Michael Griffin.
And continued fallout this week over the public revelation of the government’s anti-terrorism bank records program with a harsh administration and congressional rebuke for the press. We will address that issue and more with our panel---FOX News Managing Editor Brit Hume, Weekly Standard Executive Editor Bill Kristol, NPR Senior National Correspondent Juan Williams and Fortune Magazine Washington Bureau Chief Nina Easton.
Finally, as America celebrates its 230th birthday this Tuesday, we have a very special Power Player of the Week — the director of “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band who stirs the nation’s patriotic fervor at some of our country's most ceremonial occasions. You won't want to miss it.
