This Sunday on State of the Union

Following a shooting rampage that left 16 Afghan civilians dead, new questions are being raised about how the United States should continue fighting the war in Afghanistan. Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Friday sharply criticized the United States for not cooperating with their investigation into the killings. Have relations between the two countries ever been more tenuous? We’ll ask the Afghan Ambassador to the United States, Eklil Hakimi in an exclusive interview.

Then, we’ll change gears and focus on politics and the 2012 presidential race. Fresh off his twin victories in Alabama and Mississippi, Rick Santorum will join us from the campaign trail. Can he maintain the momentum this weekend in Puerto Rico and on Tuesday in Illinois? Should conservatives ditch Newt Gingrich to consolidate around him? We’ll ask.

And finally, we’ll tie up the loose ends with former Obama White House Communications Director Anita Dunn and former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie.

Stay tuned for more as we continue our booking efforts.

Plus; what role should the United States play in ending the blood bath in Syria? Sen. Joseph Lieberman said "we should rule out no option." We'll get his take on Syria and other Middle East hotspots.
