The 9/11 attacks on America did not just launch Washington’s war on terrorism; they launched a new White House war on whistleblowers, first under President George W. Bush and then under President Barack Obama, according to a bold new documentary directed by filmmaker Robert Greenwald.
War on Whistleblowers: Free Press and the National Security State traces how two of the most powerful and secretive Washington power centers—the Pentagon’s military-industrial complex and Internet era’s national security state—ran amok after 9/11 and declared war on a handful of whistleblowers who went to the press to expose lies, fraud and abuses that meant life or death for troops and spying on millions of Americans. It explores why Obama, who promised the most transparent administration, became the most secretive president in recent decades and even more vindictive to intelligence-related whistleblowers than George W. Bush.
13-04-10 Stanley Fischer for Chairman of the Fed? Fischer, like his student Bernanke, places banks above the law
Fischer placed Israeli banks above Israeli law, and with it is likely to leave after him in Israel a ticking banking crisis bomb. His disregard for the rule of law is no different than his student Bernanke's.
Fischer with his newly acquired Israeli ID in 2005. A 2012 Petition to the Israeli Supreme Court claims that that Fischer substituted his newly acquired loyatly to the State of Israeli and its law with loyalty to another nation and its law and/or loyatly to financial institutions and their interests.

Tel Aviv, April 10 - recent reports,  including comments by Paul Krugman, appeared to seriously consider the possible nomination of Stanley Fischer for Chairman of the Federal Reserve. Current Federal Chair Ben Bernanke, who was a student of Stanley Fischer, leaves his office in 2014.
Such reports cite Fischer's success in shielding Israel from the current global financial crisis.
The idea is misguided, in part for lack of understanding of Fischer's conduct as Bank of Israel's Governor.
The evidence shows that Fischer uncoditionally subjected Israeli banks to US law - FATCA - even before the law was made enforceable in the United States. [2,3]
With it, Fischer effectively subjected Israeli banks to the notoriously corrupt US banking regulation, undermined the rule of law in Israel and Israeli sovereingty.
Moreover, Fischer did not do so by issuing corresponding banking regulations. Instead, Fischer permitted and encouraged Israeli banks to fabricate their own FATCA regulations, and enforce them too. 
Accordingly, Petition filed with the Israeli Supreme Court - to compel Fischer to perform his duties and enforce Israeli banking regulation, pursuant to Israeli law - claimed that Fischer substituted his newly acquired loyatly to the State of Israeli and its law with loyalty to another nation and its law and/or loyatly to financial institutions and their interests. 
The petition was subjected to fraud on the court. 
Corruption of the US courts in banking related matters is central to the current financial crisis in the United States. 
Combined, the evidence shows that under Fischer's tenure in Israel, conditions have been established that are condusive to a US style financial crisis.
In short: Fischer is likely to leave after him in Israel a ticking banking crisis bomb. Moreover, his conduct in Israeli in this respect is no different than his student Bernanke's approach to banking regulation and the rule of law in the United States, with its disasterous outcome.

Unprecedented corruption of the Israeli courts over the past decade, under the tenure of Ahraon Barak and Dorit Beinisch as Chief Justicees of the Supreme Court, is central to socio-economic conditions in Israel today.
Assistant Presiding Judge of the Tel Aviv Court, Varda Alsheikh, was caught falsifying her own court records. Repeated demands by that Israeli Bar Association that Alsheikh be removed from the bench were diregarded. She hears many of the largest financial institution default cases in the Tel Aviv court.
