The signs are ominous for the U.S. and world economy. Gold continued its sharp rise, especially in dollar terms, and oil seems to have renewed its climb after a brief pause. The dollar continued to fall. This week, however, saw a decrease in the U.S. stock market after it had approached an all-time high. The political crisis in the United States worsened last week as well, with Bush's approval rating falling below 30%; soon he will be the most unpopular president since the beginning of polling. This week may see an indictment of Karl Rove. Significantly, the mainstream media is paying attention to all of these stories. Even cautious establishment outlets like National Public Radio has pundits worrying that Bush's position is so hopeless he will launch an attack on Iran as a desperate, last-ditch attempt to salvage enough popularity to avoid prison (by keeping Congress in Republican hands). Not surprisingly, then, last week also saw the release of some bad consumer sentiment numbers in the United States, showing the sharpest drop in consumer confidence since Hurricane Katrina.

On May 1, 2006, after a 24-hour respite following our participation in New York City's huge April 29th anti-war rally, WING TV returned to the road once again with three destinations in mind: Shanksville, New Baltimore, and Indian Lake, Pennsylvania.

The arrest of two leading members of the principal pro-Israel lobby AIPAC for procuring confidential information from a leading Pentagon official and passing it to an Israeli spymaster seems to be an open and shut case of espionage. This is especially so when the Pentagon employee later confessed and agreed to testify against the accused AIPAC leaders. AIPAC, after reviewing the case, decided to fire the two accused spies and stopped paying their legal expenses. The Israeli agent, recipient of the confidential information fled to Israel, and has refused attempts by the prosecution to interview him. The information disclosed to the Israeli state touched on very sensitive material pertaining to US strategy toward Iran and Iraq and was a grave matter of state, considering that the AIPAC functionaries passed on the information during wartime.

"I saw blood gushing out of his head, and helped bandage it. As we were getting him into the ambulance an Israeli soldier grabbed his long hair and they all tried to stop him from leaving in the ambulance even though they knew he was injured", said American eyewitness Zadie Susser who saw Phillip Reiss from Austraila sitting in shock immediately after he was hit.
