Any reader bothering with this book should attempt to verify every item mentioned (or is that spewed forth) by Greenberg, an inveterate liar with much to back up that description. Greenberg testified before congress, under oath, that "nobody understood those exotic financial instruments" (referring to "credit derivatives), yet a few years before claimed to GAO auditors that he, Greenberg, was an "expert on credit derivatives"! Cornelius Vander Starr, the founder of AIG, would have a nephew and trust fund baby, Kenneth Starr, later to work on Richard Mellon Scaife's notorious "Arkansas Project" and become special prosecutor of Bill Clinton.
