    August 8, 2003, 1200 PDT, (FTW) -- Wholesale Enron-style looting of US taxpayer money on a scale that threatens the stability and safety of every American has prompted an historic alliance between activism, technology, and financial expertise. A new interactive web site, now makes real, on a local level selected by each user, the enormous amounts of money that have been stolen from the US Treasury.

    Henri Poole, President of Affero, Inc. ( and board member of The Free Software Foundation .
