10. gee wouldn't it be better
to use 9/11 as a pretext to untangle all this crap than say as pretext for war, forced isolationism, and invasion of more legitimate privacies?

If you applied the same sort of blurring of laws, so that you looked at all these deals and ownerships in the light of rightness instead of strict legality then you would have plenty of reasons to consider corporations and even large private companies as 'public' entities and determine that for the purposes of tax collection, anti-trust enforcement and fair trade it would be necessary to eliminate much of this trash and make the rest transparent.

How can a company fulfill it's fiduciary, regulatory and other responsibilities if it can't figure out the interests represented by a group it's making a deal with?

How can they truely track money laundering if you can insert money at one point of such a birds nest and have it fly around like a pinball game past opaque screens and then fly out again with no trail?
