What was the nature of the exchange of information between Paulson and Blankfein and/or their staffs, and what impact might it have had on Goldman's intransigence vis a vis A.I.G.? We should all be told.
Goldman is not solely responsible, but it has a large role in AIG's crisis and a unique position of conflicted interest and influence over the terms of the bailout. Now that the crisis is over, this issue should be reopened.
The public deserves to know about Tim Geithner's three years of total incompetence at the New York Fed, and they need to hear about the billowing risk in the credit derivatives markets, and how he failed to protect us.
