Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Cheat Sheet

George Wenschhof

More discussion on the Boston bombings will take place with the spotlight on the U.S. intelligence agencies.  Revelations continue to come forward regarding the Boston bombing suspects being placed on a terror watch list(s) and pertaining to information was shared by Russian intelligence with the U.S. prior to the horrific event.

Saber rattling will ratchet up with the disclosure chemical weapons were used, in some capacity in the Syrian uprising.  President Obama had established a "red line" on the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime.

President Obama is wisely saying more detailed and verified information needs to be obtained before he would support the U.S. being part of an international force that would intervene in Syria.

Always a war hawk, Senator John McCain (R- Ariz.) will appear on NBC "Meet The Press", where he will surely argue for immediate U.S. intervention.

Israel ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren will appear on Fox News Sunday, as will Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who saw his bill for background checks, co-sponsored with Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), lose in the Senate due to a Republican led filibuster.

"Meet the Press" will also have a roundtable discussion on the legacy of former President George W. Bush, who just had a dedication to his presidential library this week.

The "quick fix" legislation passed by Congress this week, to mitigate the automatic sequester cut damage inflicted to FAA traffic controllers, will also likely receive attention.

Look also to hear some comments on the White House Correspondent Dinner, that NBC Tom Brokaw declined to attend.

Discussion will be light on the just released less than expected U.S. 2.5% GDP growth for the first quarter and the action announced by North Korea to try an American detained for allegedly trying to "topple" it's government.
