this, or is the work going to have to be done completely by others? And if this isn't the kind of thing they should look into, what is?
On Thursday Sept 15, 2008 at roughly 11 AM The Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous draw down of money market accounts in the USA to the tune of $550 Billion dollars in a matter of an hour or two. Money was being removed electronically.
The Treasury tried to help, opened their window and pumped in $150 Billion but quickly realized they could not stem the tide. We were having an electronic run on the banks. So they decided to closed down the accounts.
Had they not closed down the accounts they estimated that by 2 PM that afternoon. Within 3 hours. $5.5 Trillion would have been withdrawn and the entire economy of the United States would have collapsed, and within 24 hours the world economy would have collapsed.
I first read about this a day or so ago, and the question Gateway asks is very good:
The catastrophic attack occurred on September 11, 2008?
Why is this news just now getting out?
From the sound of this, it was a deliberate attack. So what's being done about it? And if the people responsible aren't digging into this with all they've got, why the hell not?
