    I'm getting right on it. I'm sure I can straighten it all out in a jiffy.

    The LWingers here assured me that Soros is a good guy and has Americas best interest at heart.

    The parts are already found all over the Internet. It's high finance and convoluted, but I still suspect a conspiracy theory. The red flag was this part of the OP's link:

    I didn't suspect a conspiracy theory until I got to this part:

    George Soros Buys Citigroup Inc.,
    George Soros Buys Citigroup Inc., Select Sector SPDRfinancial, Kinross Gold Corp., Sells Jetblue Airways Corp., MSC Industrial Direct Co. Inc., Navistar International Corp. -- GuruFocus.com

    "He bought Citigroup (C), now one of the top 5 holdings."!

    Not only does George Soros own Citi, but guess who is his biggest shareholder?

    None other than Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.

    Yes, The same Al-Waleed who bankrolled Obama all his life. Khalidi's boss & son to the king Obama bowed to.

    Where are facts supporting that allegation? Also, Al-Waleed has been heavily invested in Citigroup since the 1990's so it shouldn't come as a surprise that he wants to continue supporting his own assets in that company. As for Soros? If anyone has the cash flow to take advantage of a good deal, he can find it. It's the American way, no?
