Financial meltdown

Catherine Austin Pitts interview provided a refreshing and enlightening look into the financial 2008 meltdown. She makes a strong case to which we are not out of the woods. If anything we are trapped even deeper in an investment arena that's at the edge of a deep chasm. 

Wow: four trillion dollars lost or unaccountable by the Feds. And most of it in the defense arena.... lets see didn't that all occur about the time the Bush administration kicked privatization in the military, into high gear?
