WASHINGTON - December 2 - Following a speech on the Floor of the House of Representative, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today made the following statement:

“Why are we still in Afghanistan?  Al-Qaeda has been routed.  Our occupation fuels a Taliban insurgency.  The more troops we send, the more resistance we meet.  If we want to be truly secure, we need to redefine national security to include financial security. Yet America has record debt, skyrocketing unemployment, huge trade deficits, record business failures and foreclosures.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, today criticised international investors' reaction to the Emirate's debt crisis, claiming: "They do not understand anything."

The defiant ruler, whose Government yesterday washed its hands of Dubai World, the state-owned conglomerate that owes $59 billion (£35.8 billion), also said: “We are strong and persistent."

Sheikh Mohammed's comments follow support from Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahayan, President of the United Arab Emirates, who said that Dubai's leader and his Cabinet “face every morning challenges, but plan to remove all obstacles to score achievements”.

Timothy Geithner The issue has been festering for months: Why were AIG's counterparties—including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and UBS—paid 100 cents on the dollar when the feds rescued the insurance giant, helping raise the cost of the bailout to nearly $200 billion?
