    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Every night, drug smugglers gather at the border between Arizona and Mexico waiting for nightfall so they can sneak into the U.S. with their loads of methamphetamines and cocaine. This is the doorway to heaven for the drug lords. Arizona is the drug highway by which 60 percent of illegal drugs enter the U.S., eventually earning billions in profits for the drug cartels. Now comes the news that the cartels and terrorists have not only penetrated the border but have also infiltrated our banks and spread their corruption into the financial system. A few months ago, author Jerome Corsi broke the story that the U.S. office of a London-based international bank (HSBC) was being investigated for money laundering for international drug cartels and terrorists.[/FONT][1][FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] HSBC, one of the largest banks in the world, has about 7,500 offices in more than 80 countries and territories in Europe, North and South America, the Asia Pacific region, the Middle East, and Africa. Their U.S. headquarters is in New York.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]On July 17, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations issued its findings on HSBC. Among other things, the bank was accused of “facilitating transactions that hinder U.S. efforts to stop terrorists, drug traffickers, rogue jurisdictions, and others from using the U.S. financial system” and “providing U.S. correspondent services to banks with links to terrorism.”[/FONT][2][FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] (“Correspondent services” are financial services that are provided to foreign banks.)

    Nothing new. The people who own the US government also own the mobs.
