"For nearly a decade, politicians of every ilk vowed to find and kill Osama. Only a few months short of the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01, the Obama administration scored a major political victory by fulfilling that promise. Offshore investors are in an even weaker position than Osama. (In the 1980s, he actually received CIA funding to fight the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.) In contrast, no politician would dare defend U.S. investors who move money outside the United States. Indeed, for decades, U.S. politicians have accused offshore investors of engaging in narcotics trafficking, money laundering, tax evasion, and child sex slavery, among other crimes." (05/07/11)
