Norway’s financial supervisory authority released a Risk and Vulnerability analysis ... compares bitcoin to monopoly money ... noting that U.S. authorities have signaled they want to “remove this system.”

I am glad I just invested. This means I have something good.

Don't you worry about Bitcoin, let me worry about Bitcoin.

Already discussed here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=96077.0

I think we should chill a little bit, for all we know, perhaps the employee that wrote the piece just googled and found the Schumer comments:
http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20110605/22322814558/senator-schumer-says-bitcoin-is-money-laundering.shtml

Don't count on most Norwegian Departments to allways be telling the correct facts or the truth.

I highly doubt that the US will crack down on bitcoin. And we shouldn't take what comes from the US govt. at face value either.

Fact is, we don't simply know if bitcoin is just another state sponsored project. TOR and Stuxnet is two examples of other state sponsored sophisticated software.

So unless somebody takes their time and contact the Norwegian Financial Authority about the matter and get somthing of more substance, we shouldn't start making a feather into 10 chickens at this point.

But on another note, if the US went public with that they wanted to ban bitcoin, oh the Streisand effect, then surely a few more millions users would learn about it and how they could use it for all sorts of purposes online, that would add to the popularity of bitcoin actually.
