Secret Banking Cabal Emerges From AIG Shadows: David Reilly – Bloomberg.com

The skinny: One writer at Bloomberg questions who runs the banking system in the USA when a lack of open disclosure and behavior of avoidance surrounding the AIG bailout exists.

Quote:

“Later, when it became clear information would be disclosed, New York Fed legal group staffer James Bergin e-mailed colleagues saying: “I have to think this train is probably going to leave the station soon and we need to focus our efforts on explaining the story as best we can. There were too many people involved in the deals — too many counterparties, too many lawyers and advisors, too many people from AIG — to keep a determined Congress from the information.”

“Think of the enormity of that statement. A staffer at a body with little public accountability and that exists to serve bankers is lamenting the inability to keep Congress in the dark. ”
