(..) Eric de Carbonnel of the Market Skeptics letter has assembled a extensively researched two-part video about the ESF and has posted it at YouTube, where each section is about nine minutes long. De Carbonnel concludes that the ESF has been the nexus of U.S. govement covert operations throughout the world since World War II — gold market rigging is but a small part of the ESF's work. De Carbonnel notes that the agency never has been investigated by Congress, though perhaps Paul will aim a few critical questions its way at a hearing of his committee on June 23. (See http://www.gata.org/node/10004.) As always, pray for Paul's health and safety.
