Joe Jett's Alive!
"France 24 met a former Wall Street trading star, Joseph Jett. In the 90s, he worked for a large New York firm, Kidder Peabody [KP]. ... Fourteen years later, Joe Jett accepted to give a version of his demise in a France 24 interview. ... France 24 contacted Jett's former colleagues but many refused to answer our questions. Most of them still work in the banking sector and have close ties with General Electric, the US heavyweight and former owner of [KP]. Those who dared to speak out were unananimous: Jett couldn't have operated alone, his managers must have known what was going on", Gwladys Savery (GS) at http://www.france24.com/, 18 July 2008. Here's a link to GS's article which has a video. WATCH IT!, http://www.france24.com/en/20080718-reporters-banking-crime-trader-joe-jett-kerviel-wall-street.
What Uncle Sam did to Jett is a crime. Imagine, no one with KP's controller's office, no GE or KP internal auditor or KMPG CPA went to prison; Mary Joe White, "my favorite NY attorney" gets a "Big NY Law" partnership and Jett's career is ruined. What a country. GE snaps its fingers and the SDNY US Attorneys Office prostrates itself. See also my 10 August and 12 September 2007 and 12 April 2008 posts. Does Jett's fate await the Bear Stearns Two?
