When Do We Go After the Crooks Behind Our Financial Collapse?

President Obama and his new administration were going to be so tough on the corporate villains who had such a large role in fostering the recession that has upended the finances of so many.

But as author James Lieber points out in this week's cover story "No Justice," that just hasn't happened.

As it stands now, there's only one federal prosecution related to the credit crash and bailout cycle, and it was begun by the Bush administration's Justice Department in June 2008.

Turns out, most of Obama's crew were in on the ground floor of the factors leading up to the collapse, and did nothing to stop it.

If you're satisfied with what's been done so far to hold someone, anyone accountable, this story might upend your beliefs.
