President Bush makes compromises

President Bush's decision to take action under Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974 to protect the steel industry precipitated an expected deluge of
outrage from economists, Wall Street Journal opinion writers and various interests, despite a unanimous ruling from the U.S. International Trade
Committee endorsing such measures. All of the detractors lambasted the president as weak and politically self-serving, which is far from the truth. The
decision was a principled compromise made with the best interest of the country in mind.

Media barred and silenced by Israel

As the Israeli army enters the second week of its military reoccupation of the Palestinian-controlled towns of the West Bank, accusations of war crimes
abound and the violence reaches new, sickening heights.
