  •  You don't know how much they made on money (0+ / 0-)

    laundering for this group.

    It was surely much less than the fine though.

    US operations of HSBC are small.  But go for it, carp away.  No top bank exec will ever answer for money laundering in a remote outpost.

      for your claim that what they made on money laundering was 'surely' less than the fine.

      For a man who wants proof, you're not very generous with it.

      How can you actually defend this shit?  
      They probably have a good idea on the amounts because they looked at the books.

      Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?
