I Believe It Is The Right Word Too

A politician inadvertently speaks the truth

ATHENS, Greece (AP) – Greece is planning to launch on Friday a public offer for a massive bond swap designed to knock €107 billion ($142 billion) off its debt held by banks and other private investors.

The formal announcement, expected later in the day, follows a Cabinet meeting which discussed implementation of the debt-crippled country’s new austerity program.

“We have made a titanic effort — and I believe titanic is the right word — to complete prior actions required for approval of financial support for the country and the process of the private sector involvement which will be officially launched today,” Prime Minister Lucas Papademos told ministers.
