More fallout from the Swift program leak

Sister Toldjah blogged Via Gulf News

Last month the New York Times broke the story that CIA agents and US treasury officials have been secretly monitoring financial transactions routed through Swift, an acronym for the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication. […]

The European Commission has already said that EU law does not cover the handing over of financial data by Swift.The European Parliament will debate the US action on Monday.
We should see an increase in attacks in this country and in Europe, if the Belgians force SWIFT to stop what they are doing. Will Keller take responsibility for those deaths, or will he try to blame them on the Bush Administration.
Belgium Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt has ordered an investigation into the activities of Swift, which is regulated by the Belgian central bank and is subject to Belgian law.
Bbbbbut everyone knew about it already, right, Mr. Keller?
