Santelli on 'The Smoking Gun'

http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000103491

In a follow-up to Liesman's earlier rebuttal, CNBC's Rick Santelli just reiterated his earlier sentiment that the comments that Mr. Bernanke made earlier were indeed the "Libor Smoking Gun". While Bernanke tried to eschew the matter by claiming the low-level Fed employee was clueless (which from the transcript she was seemingly clued in enough to understand the rate was not 'accurate'). As Rick notes in Bernanke's own words: "the manipulation of rates was a little bit low by certain banks but they just wanted to show they were healthy during the crisis" - unbelievable! "What are regulators for?", Santelli exclaims: "manipulation is manipulation!" Indeed, Rick, indeed.

Must watch 100 seconds of eye-opening reality TV.

Our simple perspective is - if they are so comfortable with this kind of manipulation, then what other conspiracy-theory-based manipulations do we think are actally possible?
