Is there any concerns amongst you about Zimbabwe's election victory for Mugs, his plan to take all foreign miners and business holdings and then trade them on his new blacks only stock market?
Air Force allows Booze Allen to stay in business. The U.S. Air Force has found no evidence that Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH) is responsible for Edward Snowden's disclosure of classified documents, with BAH informing the Air Force about the Snowden case as required. The finding enables the defense contractor to continue working for the government, which is pretty crucial given that 98% of the company's $5.76B in revenue in the last fiscal year came from Uncle Sam.

Arizona tribe claims bank mismanaged investments

FLAGSTAFF, AZ (AP) -
The Hopi Tribe of northern Arizona claims its investments were mishandled by a national banking institute, resulting in the loss of millions of dollars.
The tribe filed its claims against Wachovia earlier this month with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. It is seeking more than $190 million in damages and penalties through arbitration.
The claims allege that Wachovia and its financial advisers concealed losses from the tribe, misrepresented the risk in investments and overcharged fees.
A spokesman for Wells Fargo & Co, which acquired Wachovia in 2008, said Thursday that the bank would present its side during an arbitration hearing.
Wells Fargo settled a case in 2011 that claimed Wachovia Capital Markets LLC misled investors to sell mortgage bonds in 2006 and 2007 to the Zuni Tribe of New Mexico.
