I'm pretty interested in this story right now. $135Billion is not chump change to ANYONE. Right now the blogosphere, a couple of asian newspapers, a
small amount of Italian (where the event happened) media, a few non-mainstream sites, and the conspiracy web, are all I've heard even mention it.
I'd really like to know myself exactly why the source article called it a Kennedy bond.
Because of the current tensions with North Korea, the US and Japanese government's silence on the issue is deafening.
According to the investopedia article I linked to earlier, the total amount of US issued bearer bonds currently outstanding is shrinking by the year.
I'm going to dig around and see if there is some decent data on the amount of total US bearer bonds outstanding. If it's less than $135 Billion we
may be assured that it is a counterfeiting or fraud operation of some type, but if their is say around $400-500 Billion of the stuff still floating
around and the bonds are real, the source could really only be two places they came from---China or Japan. And either of them trying to offload that
much in secret would be BAD.
