Full Release of Federal Reserve Emergency "Lending" Program data 2007-2009

Bloomberg has released the complete spreadsheets in a ZIP file  of the Federal Reserve Emergency 'lending' programs from 2007-2009 (don't we all wish we could borrow on those terms?). From Bloomberg:
"To download a zip file of the spreadsheets, go to http://bit.ly/Bloomberg-Fed-Data. For an explanation of the files, see the one labeled “1a Fed Data Roadmap.”
"Bloomberg News obtained information about the discount window and ST OMO through the Freedom of Information Act. While the Fed initially rejected a request for discount-window information, Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News, filed a federal lawsuit to force disclosure and won in the lower courts. In March, the U.S. Supreme Court decided not to intervene in the case, and the Fed released more than 29,000 pages of transaction data."
While we have read stories throughout the year on this information it had not yet been made available in this format.

Bloomberg has also updated their interactive chart which is quite interesting.....Couldn't embed it here but the image will take you to their chart.

However, it should be noted
"Bloomberg excluded foreign-currency liquidity swaps because names of commercial banks that borrowed under the program haven’t been disclosed to the public."
So it still remains unknown 3 years later who was bailed out with $586 Billion via foreign-currency swaps .
