I think the whole CDE fiasco was utter bullshit. The fact that repaying foreign investors via our precious $800 billion bailout is even sicker. Those investors assumed RISK by buying into something other than a T-BILL. If the damn CDEs blew up, then fuck it, the people (or governments) who bought them should have to suck it up just like the people who bought Enron stock in the past or who lost their asses in in other investments. RISK is ASSUMED in INVESTING, but the American government is selectively holding certain insiders harmless from assumption of risk as part of this B.S. bailout program.
