Fannie quickly sent this response to my query about the change in the site.They also want to make clear that the page didn't change this week but changed sometime around the beginning of 2007:
“Fannie Mae's mission always has been and continues to be increasing the availability of mortgage funds for low-, moderate- and middle-income borrowers. We achieve this by raising global capital and bringing it to local communities. The change in language on our website over the years reflects our role as a secondary market institution to provide liquidity, stability, and affordability to America's housing market through our partners,” said Amy Bonitatibus, Fannie Mae spokeswoman.
