Please show me where Freddie/Fannie informed lenders to be predatory. Please show me where buyers were forced to sign a home loan.
Please show me where Freddie and Fannie manipulated housing prices.
Please show me where Freddie and Fannie told CEOs to commit fraud.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
