The Debts of the Spenders: FBI Hysterics Accuse "Terrorists" of Roiling the Markets

Great, next time you're at the pump wondering why gas prices are so high, you can blame the terrorists for "manipulating financial exchanges." You can thank our good protectors over at the FBI, who are apparently ignorant of the basic laws of Supply and Demand. Expect more hysterics in the future as the American government seeks to blame everyone...but itself for blatant dollar inflation premiums in commodity prices.

"International organized criminals have penetrated the energy market and other strategic sectors of the U.S. and world economy. As U.S. energy needs continue to grow, so too could the power of those who control energy resources.

International organized criminals are manipulating securities exchanges and engaging in sophisticated fraud schemes that rob U.S. investors, consumers, and government agencies of billions of dollars.

International organized criminals exploit the U.S. and international financial system to move illegal profits and funds, including sending billions of dollars in illicit funds through the U.S. financial system annually. To continue this practice, they seek to corrupt financial service providers globally."
