The quick and dirty:

1. Wall Street is scared of a major cyber attack
2. Because of this fear SIFMA (Securities Industry and Financial Markets Assoc.) is asking for a "government-industry cyber war council"
3. The council they want to put together will include representatives from Treasury Dept., NSA, and DHS, led by a senior White House official.
4. This group is led by and this committee is being facilitated by former NSA director Keith Alexander

Bloomberg article

Now, giving Wall Street their own "war council" after the 2008 debacle seems a bit strange. Especially given this is on the heels of last month's revelations that the same Keith Alexander was telling Wall Street something bad might happen...

See Greyhat's ATS thread a month ago of Keith Alexander warning Wall Street of a 9/11 in Cyberspace:
ATS Thread (June 20, 2014)

My biggest concern given that Keith Alexander is involved and that Wall Street wants a special council is that these people are heading directly toward planning a financial cyber event.

Color me nutty, but something smells rotten in Denmark.

Oh c'mon. Big banks, former NSA-ers, internet control... What could go wrong?

It's inevitable. The only way to regain wealth TPTB have lost, and to secure their future is to keep having bubbles pop, and have any excuse to reclaim money from the population at large. Why do you think the only retirement vehicle besides SS is an investment into the market via IRA, 401k?

The only way to take the power back from these a-holes is to quit playing their game. No investments into the market, no commodities and no debt! This is the only way they secure their wealth. Take it away. Stop their power grabs by taking away their only source of power.
