John Crudelle To Treasury Sec. Hank Paulson:
"Don't get me wrong. I think rigging the financial markets is a good thing when the nation's security is at risk. I'm a little leery of putting the likes of hedge funds... in charge of this effort - how could that possibly go wrong? If you want everyone to be aware that Treasury is on the ball and ready to come to Wall Street's rescue, why not turn over the documents I've requested? Could it be because you don't want us to know about some very odd trading patterns on Feb. 27 and 28 this year that saved the stock market from having a truly ugly day?
