A bipartisan call is going out to the Bush administration to change its occupation policies in Iraq.
Senators from both parties say ``incompetence'' has kept the

((A mix of earnings news and economic reports awaits investors once the new trading week kicks off. Wall Street will be keeping a wary eye on oil prices, and also bracing for the possibility of earnings pre-announcements.
The Dow closed on Friday with a gain of nearly 40-points,
While the Nasdaq added 6.
Economic reports will include numbers on housing starts, weekly jobless claims, and the August report on orders for durable goods.
Wall Street firms will lead the earnings parade. Bear Stearns (BSC), Goldman Sachs (GS) Lehman Brothers, (LEH) and Morgan Stanley (MWD) are all scheduled to report on their latest results. The third quarter is not expected to turn out any record results for banking companies. Compared to the second quarter, equity underwriting dropped nearly 24-percent, while debt underwriting is off 13 percent.
And the government could be a step closer, to offering cash rewards, for people who help track down e-mail spammers. The Federal Trade Commission has made a recommendation to Congress, that if a bounty system were to be set up, it should reward whistle-blowers inside or close to spam operations, since THEY could provide details on how the business is run, which could lead to those operations being shut down.
