"The bank set up the offshore fund, which initially was to have been available to investors in the United States". (Why offshore? is it a secret? Co-incidently, 'offshore' is where all the tax havens are found).

"The Wall Street Journal, which reported the decision to exclude U.S. clients from the private offering on Monday, said about $7 billion in orders have been received, citing a person who was familiar with the situation who was not identified".

The Wall Street Journal is now owned by News International (Rupert Murdoch of Fox News fame), and leaves me wondering how much News International has invested in the Facebook deal.
