” $378.4bn was found to be laundered by Wachovia alone.
Over a third of a trillion bucks???
That has to be a typo.
More likely $378.4 million.
Very sloppy.”

Check the original link to the source at dagnyd.wordpress.com . I had to triple check it. Billion.:

Yup, not a typo. Went to the link and read it. I am speachless. The sums involved are astronomical... 1/3 of a trillion dollars is coincidentally 1/3 of the GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT OF MEXICO. I suppose most or all of that money came from US citizens buying drugs?

“This is the biggest money-laundering scandal of our time.”

This is a major league piece of work done by of course the British press, again. You would think Wachovia might have gotten suspicious after 6-7,000 subpoenas!! <P.?
The whistle blower at Wachovia,Woods was all but destroyed by his own company especially the Carribean handlers of(drug money) in Miami of all places—I’m shocked.(not really—its been a hell hole for years now.)
The British Press may save the country,if its savable.
