Why...

would the intelligence agencies and law enforcement shut down an intelligence gathering operation? I guarantee you many of the Silk Road sellers are government operations. That's the way they work. Intelligence agencies embed themselves in the systems they plan on prosecuting and shutting down for years and decades ahead of time.

Also, what do you think the the govt intelligence and federal law enforcement agencies has been doing in the past TWO YEARS since Schumer whined in Congress? Nothing? Not engaging themselves in or analyzing the bitcoin system at all? None of them have thought to buy bitcoins or set up mining ops? And not recruiting the finest technologists who will act as mercenaries for $$$ for them? And no Banksters have had the thought of making a killing they can't be prosecuted for? C'mon bro! ;)
