Take a look at this on the transparency of the Federal Reserve (from Financeaddict) compared to other large nations' central banks. Then watch this, where Timothy Geithner tries very hard to slip sleazily away from any mention of the $13 Billion that went directly from AIG to politically well-connected Goldman Sachs. "Did you have conversations with the AIG counterparties?" Response -- waffle, evade, waffle, stare, mumble. After that, try to tell me that the US is not neck deep in serious political corruption.
And they wonder what Occupy Wall Street is all about!
