Only in America can one submit false tax returns, hold meetings at the NY Fed with the agenda of manipulating LIBOR rates, and leak FOMC interest rate policy announcements prior to their release to your bankster buddies, be caught in all 3 above crimes, and be made a distinguished fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations rather than a resident of a NY penitentiary.
Perhaps the CFR should consider looking up the dictionary definition of distinguished:
1. Successful, authoritative, and commanding great respect.
2. Dignified in conduct or appearance.
Exactly what comes to mind when one thinks of Mr. Turbo-Tax Geithner.
