The real answer is that this is a bald-faced attempt by the Obama administration to *unlawfully* jump to the head of the bankruptcy creditor line by claiming fraud, in a shameless attempt to minimize the political damage from this Green Fiasco. By doing this, Obama is trying to screw the Creditors who loaned Solyndra money on Good Faith, based on the loan guarantees the administration is trying to weasel their way out of.

Kaiser of Kaiser oil was a big fund raiser and donor to OB in his election. Seems he also had his hand in Solyandra at a level where he or his foundation will be made whole for $$$ invested because of the bankruptcy. Stay tuned..

Golden chute sounding to me - wonder where the gold went. Naturally, if they thought they could build a FAB line in Fremont for a hundred or two million - I think that might be the issue. Cal Osha and Osha itself might just charge the fool out of them - Fremont et. al. as was the way most fabs just moved out of the nation.

Too much biased speculation and not enough information. I'll wait for the movie.

Everything reminds your irrational of your hate of Obama, doesn't it?

Smells like financial shenanigans to me. I wonder what will become of the 500+ million the taxpayers are on the hook for, time will tell. It seems very strange that this company (if memory serves me correctly) had upwards of 20 visits to the White House before the loan guarantee was made and now they are out of business. I wonder if the backers of the company were donors? This is a very interesting story with a lot going on in the background.
