John Kerry Set to Appear on Five Sunday Talk Shows
Those who tune in to broadcast or cable news TV on Sunday will see John Kerry on air discussing developments about Syria.
Five Sunday shows -- Fox News Sunday, ABC News' This Week, NBC News' Meet the Press, CNN's State of the Union and CBS News' Face the Nation -- have added the secretary of state to their lineup for the day.
Kerry's scheduled appearances follow Saturday's remarks by President Barack Obama that he will seek congressional authorization for a limited strike on Syria after alleged chemical weapons use by the Bashar al-Assad administration.
"Now, after careful deliberation, I have decided that the United States should take military action against Syrian regime targets," Obama stated in a 10-minute statement Saturday. "This would not be an open-ended intervention."
On Friday, Kerry laid out the case for potential action against Syria in a State Department address. "The primary question is really no longer: What do we know? The question is: What are we – we collectively – what are we in the world going to do about it?" he stated.
