I have long suspected that the Major bank along with Wall St. in this country were running a rigged game and with their ability to hide what they were truly doing by bribing politicians and inventing clever financial schemes that take a classroom full of Harvard MBA's and numerous supercomputers months to figure out, I guess thought that they would never be exposed.

Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone has an excellent article on this case and I strongly suggest that you read what happened and learn how the Big Banks have been screwing us for some time. This is not a Left vs Right case both parties are implicit in it and it really needs to be addressed. Here is the link.
