It certainly appears that everyone’s favorite big bank without a soul, Bank of America, is on tap to get the Wikileaks treatment.
In a story published yesterday on Forbes.com, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is quoted as saying that the whistleblower Web site is sitting on tens of thousands, possibly even hundreds of thousands, of sensitive internal documents from “a large U.S. bank”.
Assange said that the documents will offer a “true and representative insight into how banks behave at the executive level in a way that will stimulate investigations and reforms.”
The documents are not related toa specific incident, but highlight a systematic pattern of what he calls “Enron-like violations and unethical practices”. As any Dave fan knows, Bank of America is scum of the earth, so this should be very entertaining.
“When Enron collapsed, through court processes, thousands and thousands of e-mails came out that were internal, and it provided a window into how the whole company was managed. It was all the little decisions that supported the flagrant violations. This will be like that.”
