How Do You Lose 363 tons of Cash???

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by Bergen, Feb 7, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Democrat's inquiry into US waste and fraud in Iraq is in full swing and L. Paul Bremer the US Viceroy in Iraq at the time of the hand-over to an Iraqi government has been squirming in the spotlight.

    It has been revealed that in the months leading up to the handover, the USA was anxious to move funds out of the Iraqi Central Bank which it controlled before the new Iraqi government could get it's hands on it. It did so in the biggest transfer of money in Federal Reserve history. A staggering $5.5 billion was loaded on pallets and shipped to Iraq on a fleet of USAF cargo planes. The total weight of the transfer was 363 tons.

    None of the money can be accounted for and the US Inspector General in Iraq [who the Republicans had tried to fire] has stated that it is part of an $8.8 billion amount that he cannot account for.

    How do you lose 363 tons of cash?? Answers please on a $100 bill.

    Are you sure that wasn't 363 tons of Iraqi currency? It's just that I found a fiver in the street the other day, given the exchange rate that's about right! Who shall I send it to? is there a reward for finding it?
