Greenwald: The most revealing fact of the Obama presidency

Glenn Greenwald:

The most revealing fact of the Obama presidency is the lack of a single prosecution of Wall Street execs for the massive fraud that caused the 2008 crisis. As long as we maintain impunity, no rational person should expect anything other than pervasive elite corruption and lawbreaking.

To paraphrase comedian Lewis Black:

It’s shocking that people didn’t rise up as one and slay them.
