Bank pays massive fine for dealings with Iran and Cuba

By Charles Riley

ING Bank has agreed to pay a $619 million penalty for moving billions of dollars through the U.S. financial system at the behest of Cuban and Iranian clients, acts that violated economic sanctions.

In addition, the Dutch bank admitted to falsifying the records of New York financial institutions, according to the Manhattan District Attorney, who was joined by the Department of Justice in announcing Tuesday's settlement.

        People who say things like this are the ones who make me understand when George W. Bush said "Believe be, it'd be a lot easier if I was a dictator."

        you are ignorant as all hell.

        Raul Castro a Zionist? Seems perfectly reasonable to anyone who has just eaten about a dozen hits of Blotter Acid! Perhaps Himmler, Joseph Goebbels and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem were Zionists too? It appears the the mental capacity of people who hate Jews has declined dramatically since 1945. Perhaps we shall soon all have to pay to provide them with anti-psychotic medication? Perhaps someone has been spiking the punch-bowls at White-Supremacist Rallies with LSD?

      Hmm, depending on the profit made vs the fine, they may damn well do it again.
