WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)--Two senators on Thursday called for an outside commission to investigate worldwide financial turmoil.


Sens. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and Kent Conrad, D-N.D., said Congress should establish a seven-member commission to investigate the circumstances that caused the current financial crisis. The two compared the proposed commission to the independent 9/11 Commission, whose recommendations resulted in legislation that overhauled the U.S. intelligence and domestic security system.

"There are some unconscionable things that we learned have happened," Isakson said. "I think there was a lot of greed involved, I think there was a lot of chasing of the dollar involved, and I think the interest of the stockholder, but more important, the American citizen, got lost."

Under the senators' legislation, two members would be appointed by the president, four members by congressional leaders and one member by the Federal Reserve chairman.

The commission would have the power to report wrongdoing to U.S. attorneys and state attorneys general. The commission would also have subpoena power.

Isakson said the bill likely would be referred to the Senate Banking Committee, but there have been no signs that the panel would take up such legislation.

We should pay close attention to this!!
We may have an opportunity to put a spotlight on some crooks.
Oh do we need Kucinich and Paul on this commission.

I have the full press interview of these two that I will post as soon as I can convert it...
Stay tuned and do your homework. We really need to get on this one while it is in the early stages.

Now I know there is some BS out the gate, ie; "modeled after the 9/11 commission".
I should hope not. Not another cover-up commission! No more foxes guarding the hen house.

First off I would like to say thank you for voting to block the second $350B give away.
When will the FED stop inflating my few dollars. Don't they get it?

I kept hearing "fashioned after 9/11 Commission".
I sure hope not.
WE want the real deal. Not another cover up.
A lot of people today can see what happened.
Just listen to Dr. Paul and join the rest of us.
None of those FED / BANKERS are for the preservation of The U.S.
Again, The fox guarding the hen house.
That won't fly this time around.
This is much bigger than Watergate!!
