72. Another coincidence with a competitor Cantor/eSpeed vs Kyoto Mo

9/11 and the mob
By Judi McLeod & David Hawkins
Monday, July 11, 2005

Toronto-- In the true life stranger than fiction category, Cantor
Fitzgerald Securities and its subsidiary eSpeed network are one for the books.

Cantor Fitzgeralds New York office, on the 101st-105th floors of One World Trade Center, lost 685 employees in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacksmore than any other employer. Its e-Speed electronic bond-trading network lost 125 souls.

Happily for the disciples of "Kyoto Mo" (Canadian Maurice Strong), who argues that global climate change is driven by anthropogenic gases emitted by inhabitants of the Anglosphere, a six-member eSpeed carbon-credit trading team escaped death. Their annual one- day fishing trip had to be cancelled about 8 a.m. on the fateful morning of September 11, due to alleged bad weather over the Atlantic. Can anyone confirm the weather? New York looked pretty sunny.

Hearing that the Twin Towers had been hit, the six lucky fishers hightailed it to New Jersey, to what Joseph Noviello, executive vice president said of Rochelle Park, N.J., "where we had duplicates of everything that was destroyed at our offices in the world Trade Center."

Not only did the six execs happen to have a WTC duplicate to turn to, but by napping on the floor, including one who grabbed shuteye by resting his head on an overturned coffee cup, they got an electronic trading operation up and running within two days of the tragic events. ( bcovmon.htm).

Now get this. The eSpeed new, New Jersey office provided electronic trading services in derivatives and commodities using a software package called TreasuryConnect, which had been bought from an Enron subsidiary and licenced on August 1, 2001 to a subsidiary of Saddams favourite bank, the infamous Global Custodian and UN oil- for-food broker, BNP Paribas.
