Reuters (via Forbes.com) - The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is working with a similar agency in the United Kingdom to set position limits on West Texas Intermediate contracts on the IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) Futures Europe Exchange. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director at the CFTC, said the CFTC could regulate ICE on its own. "A lot of time is being wasted with the CFTC begging the [Financial Services Authority] to do what the CFTC could do itself," said Greenberger.

"That is not an unusual situation. During World War II, both enemy combatants and prisoners of war were held in the United States," Greenberger said.
