New Buzz: Repo 105 (Enron’s Second Coming)

This is from ZeroHedge:

..It is, in our opinion, now beyond a reasonable doubt that Lehman’s CFO should all stand in a court of law for securities fraud violations, despite Erin Callan’s and Dick Fuld’s protestations that all they did was in Lehman’s best interest. We do not doubt that; however we are currently poring through the Q&A’s of the four most recent Lehman conference call Q&As with analysts… Something tells us quite a few smoking guns will emerge. Lehman has become merely the latest example of all that is broken with today’s crony capitalist system. Before that it was Goldman and swap gate; before that it was Goldman and AIG-gate; before that it was Goldman and SLP-gate, and on, and on. The evident conclusion is that the core driver of modern capitalist society is fraud at its very core, and nothing short of a massive revolutionary overhaul of the political system, which is the number one defender of the status quo courtesy of very lucrative bribes and kickbacks originating from the same rotten Wall Street that day after day is uncovered to be nothing but a sham filled with toxic assets, used to collateralize an ever growing wall of liquidity (think you Bernanke). Anyway, back to Dylan, who, in traditional fashion, is painstakingly diplomatic “This report comes just short of suggesting this is by no means an accident but instead one of the greatest crimes ever perpetrated by a group of people, and enabled by the US government.” And Spitzer concludes: “there is no doubt civil cases will be brought. We had a failure of CEO, the CFO, the accountants, and indeed the regulators, the Fed and the Treasury, that were inside these banks, and the question has to be asked: where were they.

This is a major crime. Plain and simple. Mr. President, what the hell is your admin doing? Fire Geithner. He knows all about this.

    “Will Lehman Fallout Rekindle Bank Asset Worries?”

    This is the game chaner (sic) and what I have been waiting for. To think the rest of these mutts weren’t doing the same thing is laughable.
