You stated: "The article didn't say that." To which I replied with the quote of a spokesperson within the article saying exactly that. You replying that boxes were taken does not prove your statement that the article did not say boxes weren't taken was correct.
The article clearly cites a worker saying boxes were not taken. You are still wrong on what I said you are wrong on.

First fast and furious now this. The Chicago thug may be in serious trouble here.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
All we know right now is that a company that received half a billion lied about it's finances and then filed bankruptcy. All one can conclude at this point is gross mismanagement or criminal activity of those that ran the company. Taking it beyond that at this point is HIGHLY speculative.
Under this logic, anyone making loans to a failed business is as culpable in it's failure as those actually responsible for working the business plan.
The investigation is starting where it should... and must progress where the actual evidence leads. If that doesn't stop until the white house, so be it... but to make proclamations absent an investigation is emo-reactionism... don't care which two parties are involved.

If the money trail is seedy and there are legal implications, I don't really see a problem with the raid.
Are we focusing on this case because of bankruptcy or because it's a "green energy" company? Because frankly, any company that doesn't play by the rules deserves to have the full weight of the law come down on them. Part of our economic recovery should involve holding businesses more accountable for their practices.
