usually when you filter big money you dont want anyone to know about it.

recent story apparently involves the removal of millions right under the noses of national leaders and politicians.

i can only surmise that whoever was behind this needed the cash real bad, or else we wouldn't have found out.

but for what? there is room for clandestine conspiracy here, does anyone care to comment?

Baghdad -- Earlier this month, according to Iraqi officials, $300 million in dollar bills was taken out of Iraq's central bank, put into boxes and quietly put on a charter jet bound for Lebanon.

The money was to be used to buy tanks and weapons from international arms dealers, the officials say, as part of an accelerated effort to assemble an armored division for the fledgling Iraqi Army. But exactly where the money went, and to whom, and for precisely what, remains a mystery, at least to Iraqis who say they have been trying to find out.
