Those of you who have been following the Leo Wanta story will remember Hank Paulson being arrested earlier, now they have raised the stakes and arrested the Maestro himself, Alan Greenspan:

FORMER FED CHAIRMAN GREENSPAN IN JAIL WITHOUT BAIL
During the week ending 15th June 2007, ‘unspecified very senior officials’ in the United States were arrested and jailed without bail, in connection with corrupt financial operations exploiting the financial assets belonging to Ambassador Sir Leo Emil Wanta (1) as sole Principal.

The former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Dr Alan Greenspan, who was in office when these illegal and corrupt financial scandals to the severe detriment of the American people, the US Treasury and the Ambassador were embarked upon, is among those in jail, and has likewise been refused bail. This is only the beginning of the belated sensational consequences of Wantagate.

SIR LEO FILES FOR A WRIT OF MANDAMUS IN FEDERAL COURT
On 18th June, the Ambassador filed a Writ for Mandamus in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. The case Number is: Civil Action # 1-07 CV 609. The text of the filing is given below, minus the Exhibits [see notes at foot of the text]. The Judge in this action has the power to compel payment of the illegally diverted and exploited $4.5 trillion Settlement to the Ambassador/AmeriTrust Groupe, Inc..

A Petition for a Writ of Mandamus is not a normal lawsuit, but presupposes a matter of the gravest consequence. The Judge has latitude to proceed in such a manner as he sees fit. For instance, he has power to order the convening of a Grand Jury, to compel each and every Member of the Bush II Cabinet to appear before him, including the President and the Vice President, to order their prompt compliance with the Court’s demands, and to procure whatever remedies, however severe, that he may deem appropriate.

Sir Leo Wanta? When was he knighted?

Sir Leo Wanta? When was he knighted?

LOL I am not sure, Christopher Story has been referring to him like that lately. It even mentions at the bottom of this article:

1) Leo Wanta received an honorary knighthood from Her Majesty The Queen. As a British subject, the Editor is entitled to designate the Ambassador as Sir Leo Wanta, reflecting his exalted status as a recognised benefactor of the United Kingdom.

But....but isn't the queen supposed to be a member of the all powerful ruling elite? And Wanta let her come at him with a sword? Crikey!

Knighthoods conferred upon British subjects are not 'honorary', and Wanta's claims of citizenship and status are beginning to sound like the introduction to a Nigerian spam email.

Me thinks that if there were a smidgeon of truth in this story it would be all over the news and not simply on a handful of obscure Internet sites.

I think that the phrase "as a British subject" in this case has as its subject "the Editor", i.e., Mr. Story, who is apparently British, and doesn't claim UK citizenship for Mr. Wanta.

Applying the honorific "Sir" to a recipient of an honorary knighthood isn't correct. I remember that being mentioned in the press back when the late Ronald Reagan received such an honorary knighthood.

In 1989, Reagan received an honorary British knighthood, The Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath. This entitled him to the use of the post-nominal letters GCB, but did not entitle him to be known as "Sir Ronald Reagan". He, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and George H.W. Bush are the only American Presidents to have received the honor.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Reagan#Honors

Citizens of countries which do not have the Queen as their head of state sometimes have honours conferred upon them, in which case the awards are "honorary". In the case of knighthoods, the holders are entitled to place initials behind their name but not style themselves "Sir". Examples of foreigners with honorary knighthoods are Riley Bechtel, Bill Gates, Bob Geldof, Bono, and Rudolph Giuliani, while Arsène Wenger and Gérard Houllier are honorary OBEs. Honorary knighthoods arise from Orders of Chivalry rather than as Knights Bachelor as the latter confers no postnominal letters.

This Story fellow, through perfect, unwavering consistency, may have achieved the status of the character Markiss, who Mark Twain wrote about in Roughing It:

They explained that the perfectly undeviating consistency of Markiss's character for thirty years towered aloft as colossal and indestructible testimony, that whatever statement he chose to make was entitled to instant and unquestioning acceptance as a lie.

Being arrested and held without bail didn't seem to stop Greenspan from making public appearances and statements last week. Maybe he got the LA County Sheriff to spring him.

This Leo Wanta saga is sounding more and more like that of Pecos Bill. Where the tallest part of the tale is the existence of the man himself.

Do we have any youtube videos of Mr. Wanta dressed in only a pair of tighty-whiteys and a "The End is Nigh" sign draped over his shoulders, screaming at the voices of the Sponge Demons on an inner city street corner somewhere?

Rereading it I think you're right; either way it's nonsense.

The Twain quote is brilliant.

I can't believe how many people are seriously arguing with James about this, as if it could ever on the planet be possible. And Story is a very odd man.

Yeah, I get an amazing number of comments and e-mails accusing me of being a CIA shill or someone who is denial about the reality of the world. I did get a nice e-mail from Leo Wanta's son once though.

Hey, if Barbara Olson can be sighted on the Polish-Austrian border, why can't Alan Greenspan get arrested?

Okay, I'll bite: what did he say? Did he want the silly conspiracy stories about his father to stop, or what?

He said that he liked my posts, and that his father did actually have some interesting friends in the 80s, but even the family didn't really know where reality ended and fantasy began with him.

This is actually starting to sound like a sad and familiar story.

It sounds almost like Mr. Wanta himself is suffering from schizophrenia. It's plausible that he may have held a high position before he succumbed to the illness.

If the conspiracist whack-jobs are feeding his delusions because his delusions fit into theirs, then they are causing him great harm.

I believe his identical clone carried on his day to day business without ever being incarcerated as well. We must presume the original Mr. Paulson simply withered away and died in the jail cell.

Yeah, he threatened "JamesB of Bellevue, Washington" with a suit under British libel law for defaming him. I haven't changed one word, but no lawyers have showed up. Christopher Story seems to be making a mini industry out of this, he is trying to get people to buy a $550 subscription to his crappy International Currency Review to read the details behind the story.

Story updates this:

http://www.worldreports.org/news/66_cheney_hides_out_as_

We stand by what we have posted on the jailing of Dr Alan Greenspan, but we are not yet further informed as to what has happened to him since that event. What we have now been told is that the jailing of Dr Greenspan has been exploited by Cheney-controlled MK-ULTRA-style disinformation specialists as a diversionary ploy to get people running around crazily looking for the wrong fox.

Oh yes, because this story has just taken the country by storm. CNBC has been talking about it non-stop for two days. :D

Does anyone else feel this Greenspan arrest story is almost exactly like the Paulson arrest story? I swear I remember them saying this exact same thing about Paulson...

Maybe he mistook Alan Greenspan for Paris Hilton? I can see how a reporter of his calibre could make such a mistake. They do look a lot alike.
