Did Lehman Bros fail? Or was it pushed?
I found this article both plausible and disturbing. Of course, those who believe everything happens by chance will scream "another conspiracy theory!"
But the fact is, conspiracies happen every day.
Curious that Goldman Sachs, Lehman's competitor, not only survived but became the recipient of a huge bail out purse. Didn't Obama's Treasury Secretary Geithner also previously work at Goldman Sachs?

Lehman should have been bailed out (well, it shouldn't have got to that point, but once it got to that point...), but there was p'bly no way to get the necessary support from then. It nearly made America into a failed state by crashing the money markets when it went down.

gaff-o is as wise about finance as he is about physics, chemistry, logic, math, etc...
Of course, once you've ascribed all evil in the world to Jews, and are sure of that, nothing else matters. 'Splains a lot about ol' gaff-o.

Lhman was puzzed why they were "left out", scince they were heathier than Goldman and a member of the club(the fed).
Also, the forced aquisition of Merrll be BAC without stckholder knowledge was also collusion.
The CEO was threated by Greenspan to accept it or he would be ousted.
For some reason, unknown, Lehman fell out of favor leading tho an electronic selling binge that cost american 401k's to lose 40% of value.
After the fed priinted 24 trillion fake money, within months, the fed banks were making record profits, and instead of easing credit, began swallowing up smaler banks.
This article tells part of the story
