Marc Faber sees the latest Goldman investigations more as a PR move to appease the angry masses. "They targeted Goldman because it stands as a symbol of Wall Street, plus it's also Isreal, you understand?...And now they go after Goldman Sachs to distract the attention of the people and target the minority, Wall Street and Goldman Sachs. And maybe the intention is not to hurt Goldman Sachs, but just to gain popularity with the middle class and the lower classes of America, so they will perceive Mr.Obama to have done something against the evil Wall Street."

Update: There is also an article about him on Kitco where he downplays the precious metals market manipulation claims.
