Kucinich to Investigate Insider Trading Allegations

To which I say, fine.

Congressman Dennis Kucinich revealed that he is initiating an investigation into the insider trading that took place leading up to 9/11, particularly in regards to put options placed on American Airlines and United Airlines stock.

Kucinich said that he had personal questions about the implications insider trading had.

The insider-trading allegations were certainly highlighted in the first few weeks after the attacks, and the 9-11 Commission, while concluding the trades were not made with advance knowledge of the attacks, did not provide sufficient detail to quiet the kooks. I have no doubt that the Troofers will incorporate the people who made the trades into their conspiracy theories; that is unfortunate but inevitable in our open society.
