This is a interesting read on the same subject. Pretty long.

Magnetar hedge fund only wanted the worst loans so it would fail and then collect insurance.

There are two major players in this fiasco ....
Apparently, GS employee (google) Fabrice Tourre and and Hedge Fund manager John Paulson intentionally selected THE WORST mortgage bonds they could find, sold them as CDSes to other investment banks and then shorted them, knowing they were garbage.

Ya' know what sucks about all this ...?
NO ONE will go to jail.
They'll be fined, and they will continue to do what they've been doing.
If your net worth is $12 BILLION, a $15 million $$ fine is a drop in the bucket.
(However, I sense the gov't will make Tourre the fall guy)
