1. Financiers have long been key operatives for BFEE over the decades. Like Marc Rich -
he was named in both IranContra and BCCI - the biggest criminal bank in the world, but you never hear about that connection.

Madoff is sounding more and more like another Marc Rich, but, on an even GREATER scale of criminality. Why else did so many in government look the other way?
