Bernanke Calls for an Audit of the Fed

Whaaaaaaat?

It’s true:  Ben Bernanke has called for a GAO audit of the Federal Reserve.  His motives are less exciting, however; the request comes right before he’s scheduled to be confirmed by the Senate and in light of recent accusations of deception by the Fed about its relations with AIG.  

Though this is simply political posturing, it’s certainly an interesting development in Ron Paul’s fight to audit (and end!) the Fed.
