(VIDEO) Ron Paul on US expands AIG Record Bailout

WASHINGTON (AFP) — The US government announced Monday an expanded bailout for insurance giant AIG of more than 150 billion dollars, as the Treasury tapped into emergency funds originally set for banks.

The latest bailout plan, the largest in US history, came as AIG burned through billions of dollars of cash and reported a third-quarter loss of 24.47 billion dollars.

The original Federal Reserve rescue of 85 billion dollars in mid-September, at the time the largest in corporate history, was expanded by 37.8 billion dollars just a few weeks later, and involved the government acquisition of a 79.9 percent stake in the troubled insurer… US expands record bailout of insurance giant AIG

KEITH OLBERMANN * SPECIAL COMMENT

MSNBC Keith Olbermann 06:38

His voice trembling, Keith looks into the camera and says

“You are asked now to stand on a question of love. All you need to do is stand and let the tiny ember of love meet its own fate. You don’t have to help it. You don’t have to applaud it. You don’t have to fight for it. Just don’t put it out. Just don’t extinguish it. Because while at first it may look like that love is between two people you don’t know and you don’t understand and maybe you don’t even want to know, that love is, in fact, the ember of your love for your fellow person. Just because this is the only world we have and the other guy counts too.”

Cafferty File: Should the U.S. attack al Qaeda without permission?


FROM CNN’s Jack Cafferty:

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, remember him? The incompetent boob a chorus of retired generals and admirals called on to resign because of his incompetence and inability to lead our military? He finally quit in November of 2006.

Well guess what? According to a report in the New York Times, Secretary Rumsfeld authorized a classified order back in 2004 that allows the U.S. military to carry out broad and secret attacks against al Qaeda even if those attacks occur inside countries we’re not at war with. In other words, these controversial strikes of late inside Syria and Pakistan are just fine according to Rumsfeld, whether the governments or people of those countries like us waging war inside their borders or not.

More than a half-dozen current and former military and security officials confirmed this to the New York Times. The measure gives the U.S. military the power to attack al Qaeda anywhere in the world.

Most of these attacks, when they occur, are carried out by U.S. Special Forces in conjunction with the C.I.A.

Here’s my question to you: Should the U.S. be attacking al Qaeda in foreign countries without permission?
