Was the 2008 economic crash intentional? That's the argument being put forth by Kevin Freeman, author of Secret Weapon: How Economic Terrorism Brought Down the U.S. Stock Market and Why It can Happen Again (editor's note: That's a pretty long and scary title). The media is either too lazy or too involved to bother reporting on this, despite the fact that Kevin briefed the Pentagon on economic terrorism. What evidence suggests foul play in the '08 market crash?
Freeman, who was a guest on GBTV last night,discussed how bin Laden's attack on the World Trade Center was as much an attack on the economy as it was a physical attack that killed thousands.
Freeman also said that there were some Shariah hedge funds that are suspected of being enagged in "financial jihad".
Freeman also told Glenn that the odds of hedge funds like Bear Sterns suddenly collapsing the way that they did in 2008 were so low that it raises suspicions.
"Bear Stearns had some financial problems, but that panic caused the stock price to collapse," he said.
Freeman also said that if America was under an attack of economic terrorism, it is an attack of three phases.
First, there is an attack on energy prices.Freeman said, "That weakened our economy so substantially because people had a choice between paying their mortgages or paying their gas bill."
"Phase 2 was the bear raids. That panicked everybody out of the stock market," he added.
The third phase, Freeman said, was an attack on currency and credit rating - much like what is happening in Greece.
