Picking on the (Weak) Kenyan link

Instead of going after the owners, or the top executives of Riggs Bank, prosecutors are targeting Kenyan Banker Simon Kareri of Washington DC,

After 9/11, it was discovered that some money that the terrorists received had come from the household of the Saudi Ambassador. Subsequent investigations revealed that the President of Equatorial Guinea had been the bank’s main customer for many years and had moved billions of the country's petro-dollars through the Bank with Mr. Kareri as his personal banker. Since Saudi Arabia are America’s friends, diplomats have immunity, and Riggs Bank is revered in Washington, it seems only that managers like Mr. Kareri (who was a lowly VP) will be left out to hang. He has not been charged with any crime, and yet they want to seize his property.
