This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Sept. 18, 2013 for week ending Sept. 27, 2013

"This has been a huge victory, unexpectedly, for a resurgent anti-war movement that I think many of us were shocked to see re-emerge. And we have to remain on guard, we have to remain prepared to keep up the pressure on Congress ... and keep up the pressure on the U.S. to move toward forceful diplomacy rather than military force."

– Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism project at the Institute for Policy Studies, on the success of the peace movement and anti-war sentiment preventing a U.S. attack on Syria

Could U.S. - Russia Agreement on Assad's Chemical Weapons Lead to Negotiations to End Syria's Civil War?

Interview with Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism project at the Institute for Policy Studies, conducted by Scott Harris

syria

The first independent investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria’s civil war was released by the United Nations on Sept. 16. While the report did not issue a finding on which side was responsible for the use of chemical weapons, it did conclude that surface-to-surface rockets filled with the deadly nerve agent sarin were likely launched from positions controlled by the Syrian government and killed hundreds of civilians in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta on Aug. 21. However, casting doubt on any solid conclusion about who used chemical weapons, the U.N. report noted that while their investigative team was at the Ghouta attack site under the control of rebels, “Individuals arrived carrying other suspected munitions, indicating that such potential evidence is being moved and possibly manipulated.”  Story continues

Interview with Mattea Kramer, research director with National Priorities Project, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

wealthytaxbreaks

Each year since 1974, the White House releases an estimate of the cost of all federal tax breaks, also known as subsidies or tax loopholes. The non-partisan, non-profit National Priorities Project has recently completed a ground-breaking analysis of these federal tax breaks over the past 38 years, revealing they have grown in number and size, diverting money that could otherwise be used in to benefit Americans in need.  Story continues

Interview with Richard Eskow, senior fellow with the group Campaign for America’s Future, conducted by Scott Harris

incomeinequality

Although income inequality has been rising in the United States over the last 30 years, a new report from economists at the University of California at Berkeley, the Paris School of Economics and Oxford University have found that the wealth gap has now reached record levels. According to analysis of data from the Internal Revenue Service, the top 1 percent of earners in the U.S. pulled in 19.3 percent of total household income in 2012, the largest share for nation’s wealthiest citizens in more than 100 years. The next highest share of wealth taken by the richest was recorded in 1927 at 18.7 percent, two years before the start of the Great Depression. According to the study, incomes among the top one percent rose by 31.4 percent between 2009 and 2012, while incomes for everyone else grew just 0.4 percent. The top ten percent of earners in the economy now control more than half of the nation’s total income.  Story continues
