Taibbi: HSBC got away with murder

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Matt Taibbi takes the Justice Department to task over settling with HSBC late last year in the "largest drug-and-terrorism money-laundering case ever."

"The HSBC case went miles beyond the usual paper-pushing, keypad-punching­ sort-of crime, committed by geeks in ties, normally associated­with Wall Street," he writes, "In this case, the bank literally got away with murder – well, aiding and abetting it, anyway."
