The CIA's Wall Street connections A week old (MeFi search timed out, sorry if a repeat), but good stuff in here. U.S. gov't's oil interests/stock manipulation/foreknowledge of the attacks -- Ruppert covers a lot of interesting ground in this long interview.

Extremely informative for people who believe any old stupid thing they read.

here's a ruppert article (via section 27 :)

CIA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR “BUZZY” KRONGARD MANAGED FIRM THAT HANDLED “PUT” OPTIONS ON UAL

It is good to know Rupert is postively sure. Now if he could present some facts.

To elaborate on my earlier snideness:

When someone makes an outlandish claim, I tend to check on the veracity of the claims made along the way as a means of testing the validity of the entire argument. In particular, an author might make some claim in an area where I have a good amount of knowledge, and can more readily assess whether what he says is true. If it is not, I tend to discount the rest of his assertion as well.

Regarding the "obviously suspicious" spike in options trades: Option volume is not stable IN THE LEAST. To take some random examples from today's options markets:

Charles Schwab Dec 12.5 Call: today's volume 2201, yesterday 4.
Proctor & Gamble Oct 60 Call: today: 6970, yesterday: 16.
Intel April 27.5 Put: today: 11110, yesterday: 33.

From which I can obviously conclude that Schwab is going to be funneling money from Intel, through the Contras, Hillary Clinton, and Dick Cheney to Proctor and Gamble. The missing money won't show up until Intel's Q1 report for 2002, causing the stock to plunge.

Except there's about a trillion options that showed sudden changes in activity today. Maybe I can consult Nostradamus and hidden bible codes to get it all sorted out.

There doesn't seem to be anything so ridiculous that some people won't believe it, so long as it supports their preconceptions.

marknau I'm wondering from where did you get that info on the puts and calls? cboe.com? Can't find a tool to search for individual ops with their vol's. Maybe you can help me out.

The info I posted was from either E*trade or Datek, I forget which I logged on to. Any online broker that does options trading will have the info. I don't know how much they expose to non-customers, though.

I learned one important fact from the article. Before you fly, be sure to check the put/call ratio of the airline you are traveling on.
