Is President Obama's Attorney General's criminal investigation of eight banks as to misleading mortgage resale clients (according to "a person" familiar with the investigation, according to Reuters on Thursday) a declaration of war on Wall St. in order to send it crashing into the Israel lobby and thus into Israel so as to "stop the settlements"? I call it a war because, although this rumor could be quashed in a minute, if the rumor is true it will be allowed to run its course, even if that's predetermined to be a false alarm, and this will mean months of instability in the markets. I call this a strike suit because to second-guess the regulators who presided over the free-for-all build-up to the financial crash is an abuse of discretion no legal system could tolerate--but, on the other hand, he is the President, and he does seem intent on this "two-state solution" as on nothing else. And Israel has given him plenty of cause in the last week to conclude it is ignoring him.
