CIA Counterfeiting operation

1 out of every 10,000 US bills, is a superdollar, an almost perfect counterfeit. The US government has blamed russia, North Korea, and most recently Iran for these bills, however seeing as how the technology used to make these bills is nearly the same as that used to make the real thing, it\'s likely an inside job, as in the CIA.

The superdollar uses near identical paper, red and blue security fibers, security thread and watermark, and they are printed via the intaglio process.

The U.S.-dollar forgeries designated \"Supernotes,\" which are so good that even specialists are unable to distinguish them from genuine notes, have circulated for almost two decades without a reliable identification of the culprits. Because of their extraordinary quality, experts assume that some country must be behind the enterprise.

The administration of George W. Bush officially accused Pyongyang of the deed in the autumn of 2005, derailing Six-Party Talks on Pyongyang\'s nuclear weapons program. Since then, tensions on the Korean Peninsula have increased considerably. America charges that North Korea is financing its rocket and nuclear weapons program with the counterfeit \"Supernotes.\"

North Korea is one of the world\'s poorest nations and lacks the technological capability to produce notes of such high quality. According to the Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung, North Korea is at present unable to even produce the won [the North Korean currency]. The sources, which do not wish to be identified, allege that the CIA prints the falsified \"Supernotes\" at a secret facility near Washington to fund covert operations without Congressional oversight.

It\'s basically a proven fact that the CIA has been involved in drug smuggling since vietnam, this information leaked alongside the Iran-Contra affair.
here is some reading on the matter: aine_trafficking_in_the_US

So, I wouldnt put it past them to run a counterfeiting operation. Especially since they were responsible for MKULTRA, and there is evidence to show that the operation continued.

What I would like help with, is researching CIA front companies, specifically printing presses or warehouses etc. that might be the source of the counterfeits.

come on guys, this is a quality topic, with actual research put into it, don't let it rot. If you guys can put up 10 pages worth of posts on nonsense topics. theres no reason you cant offer input or collaboration on one that actually could be rooted in truth. Quality reigns over quantity when it comes to posting! Just because this is a topic that warrants more than a simple "I agree" doesnt mean you shouldn't research and put forth effort.

Interesting topic.

Knowing what we do about covert actions of the CIA, this could be a way for them to pay for their undercover operations without the bills being traceable to them. They could also be using them as a means to track certain purchases. Another way to follow the money so to speak.

I never considered the idea of tracking. Another possibility is taking out loans from other countries, such as china for instance, and repaying them with superdollars, the geographical location makes it easy to blame North Korea and Pyongyang.

Your idea is interesting if only from the perspective of what cash actually buys. I have been reading about the collapse of the USSR and while the country was being gutted there were transactions involving actual shipping containers full of rubles.

They may just be trying to cash in (ahem) on the end of paper money. If the goal of the Supernotes is to debauch the dollar, how can they succeed beyond what the Fed has done? Seems like if you are right, the goal is simply to make money by printing it and it's the black market 'customer' who then spends and circulates them.

One average shipping container full of palletized/stacked US 100 bills would come to almost two billion and could be printed fairly quick and shipped out of country. The benjies would end up back here eventually, but what about the serial #'s? Seems like eventually they'd go to the well too much but the paper trail leads nowhere, then what's the downside for them? By the time anyone knew, the damage would be done.

Track dollars through ...It's fun!

[EDIT: Whoops, I had my numbers wrong. Assuming a Standard 20 foot container and assuming a million dollars per square foot (based on this page) then maybe 2 billion per shipping container is possible. Not 20 billion, like I had typed.]

Does anyone have any Idea where the CIA could be printing from? FAZ research suggests somewhere in the Washington DC Area.

If they need help laundering their superbills, they can give me a ring... although I'm sure they can manage on their own ;p
