"We are ready to apologize for those who traded humanity for profits," said Margrith Ledermann, the Swiss consul in San Francisco.
Ah yes I remember it well.
According to the New York Sun, UBS the Swiss bank which operates the largest "wealth management" firm in America will be investigated by Congress for laundering money for Iran and Cuba.
The Swiss bank will be pressed about $3.9 billion deposited in UBS accounts by the Castro regime, according to Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican of Florida, who first announced the impending investigation on Friday. Possible improper financial dealings with the Islamic Republic of Iran and Saddam Hussein's Iraq will also be subject to scrutiny, she said.
In 2003, American soldiers liberating Iraq discovered $762 million in American currency stashed in hideouts belonging to Saddam. According to Ms. Ros-Lehtinen, a Federal Reserve Bank probe traced the cash to UBS and other international financial firms. While investigating the Swiss bank's possible business relationship with Saddam's dictatorship, it was discovered that the firm - as part of a program with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, in which UBS allowed clients to retire old banknotes and replace them with fresh currency - had also conducted transactions with Cuba, Iran, Libya, and Yugoslavia.
Why am I not surprised? The Swiss were as dirty as the Germans, cleansing their sins all through the most gruesome war of wars. Neutral? Switzerland, like other countries that remained neutral during World War II, had "extremely profitable economic relations" with Germany that significantly prolonged the war, said Martin Primack, professor emeritus of economics at San Jose State University.
The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.
Hardly neutral.....................talk about malevolent "spin". Do you think they will make reparations again to the families of the victims of terror? me neither........
