Bank of America Corporation ( ) is an American multinational banking and financial services corporation, the largest bank holding company in the United States, by assets, and the second largest bank by market capitalization.

The bank's 2008 acquisition of Merrill Lynch made Bank of America the world's largest wealth manager and a major player in the investment banking industry.

4.80 min. | 3.11 user rating WOW - for the VP nominee to be questioning the motivation of America's participation in the Iraq War while proclaiming its merits at the Republican Convention that 'its all about terrorism'... gasp. And she is sitting there questioning this, and in the same breath sending her son over there for that purpose?? Apparently until very recently, Sarah Palin did not believe John McCain's own stance that the Iraq War is about Terrorism -- She thinks the Iraq War IS about oil - and not about terror. That differs entirely from her speech as VP nominee at the Republican National Convention, and all along the campaign trail thereafter. Why else would she even question it. I wonder if these are the kinds of things causing McCain insiders to refer to her as a Whack Job and Diva. This video, from EARLIER, before all the war-mongers, far-right corporate interests in the Republican party and media lights and attention descended on her voraciously, she was much more honest about her true feelings - nothing to hide - she is not at ALL convinced the Iraq War is about terrorism but is, in fact, inclined to believe it is about oil at least to enough of an extent that you can read in on her face, plain and simple. So, what is the foreign policy experience of Sarah Palin? Well - in her honest, unvarnished interview, she believes that George W. Bush and John McCain may have sent her son to a war for the benefit of energy supplies and oil. Boy, she really did an about face on this after <b>...</b>
