Timetable For Athens Default

Could this be true?

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-.../2847390/posts

"A written document giving firm dates and detailed actions for a planned Greek default has been in the possession of two top Wall Street bank currency trading bosses since the second week in January. The Slog has separate but corroborative sources affirming the existence of the document, and a conviction among senior bank staff that – at least at the time – the plan represented “a timetable, not a contingency”. The plan gives a firm date of March 23rd for default to be announced after the close of business. "

Well,

Probably some truth to it, I bet the dates are off one way or another by a few weeks. Hold on to your butt afterwards.

My bet is it will take longer to unfold than we think... I have thought BOOM for a couple of years now - the worlds CB's have been amazingly adroit, in collusion from their respective governments, at delaying the day of reckoning, by continuously LYING about the data and changing the rules of the game when they get in the way of the lies.

DAB, bless his heart, is back by proxy, i.e., Alant. Nothing personal against Alant, but he seems to echo DAB's points of view.
