I could not agree more with your assessment.
Especially on the issue of independent oversight- any time I see an investigation being carried out by people directly connected to it, be that in the judiciary or in corporate misdeeds, I assume it's going to be bunk.
There is no reason to assume that there will be any consequences laid there, no expectation of an honest and thorough accounting or fair judgement. Corruption has leeched into the very core.
