The President has signed a series of findings and executive orders authorizing secret commando groups and other Special Forces units to conduct covert operations against suspected "terrorist" targets in as many as ten nations in the Middle East and South Asia.

 "Our commanders and diplomats on the ground believe that Iraq has not descended into a civil war," Bush said in his weekly radio address. "They report that only a small number of Iraqis are engaged in sectarian violence, while the overwhelming majority want peace and a normal life in a unified country."
Commanders on the ground, however, tell a completely different story.

As Income Inequality Grows, Union Advantage Increases
A  report by the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities and the Economic Policy Institute reveals that income inequality has increased  since the 1980s.  The average income of the nation’s poorest families grew by 18.9 percent, while the incomes of the richest families increased by  58.5 percent.  In the early 2000s, the poorest one-fifth of families had an average income of  $16,780, while the top one-fifth of families had average incomes of more than  $122,150, more than seven times as much.  According to the report, the biggest cause of growing income inequality over the last 20  years has been the decline in wages for the 70 percent of workers who do not have a college degree.  Furthermore, the report says one of the main reasons for declining wages is the weakening of unions and the lack of effective labor laws to protect workers seeking to  form unions.  To see a copy of the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities and the Economic Policy Institute report, go to:
