Financial terrorists should be brought to justice

One of the goals of the 9/11 terrorists was to destroy our financial system, and we have gone to great lengths to try to track them down, and rightly so. Yet for all the tragedy and devastation that came out of the 9/11 attacks, it was a mere blip on the radar of the financial markets.

Now let's take a look at the real terrorist -- the "financial terrorist," the company executives and Wall Street elite who feel everything is theirs for the taking and everyone else be damned. What the terrorists could not do with planes used as flying bombs these people have done through pure greed. They have brought the world's financial markets to their knees.

I say let's use the Patriot Act on them, round them up, send them to Gitmo and let them rot there for a few years. Maybe that will cause the next generation of "financial leaders" to pause and think about more than how they can manipulate their company's books for personal gain.
