the China Syndrome, 2010 version

I encountered Today’s Mystery Question in a comment by Ken E. Zen, following the Economist’s analysis and discussion of Paul Krugman’s call for trade protectionism.

The Mystery Question is:

“How much of our Sovereign debt is being bought by China or simply reprocessed through the Federal Reserve?”

I must mention, though, that the runner up for Mystery profundity was signalled by an earlier commenter, rewt66, when he brought up the ages-old tragi-comic conundrum of human activity: Unintended Consequences?.
