No doubt the "loot" will find its way to some private collections where again it will remain hidden from view. It seems the items were undocumented making it harder to state the significance of all of the artifacts. A shame.

The Libyan Job: Insiders Used War to Steal Priceless Artifacts


BENGHAZI, Libya — The treasure was kept mostly in two wooden chests, and locked away in a bank vault: thousands of coins, jewelry and figurines, some around 2,600 years old. For decades it sat in the bank, unattended despite the historical and monetary value. Then, as a popular uprising erupted around the downtown bank last winter, someone entered the vault and made off with the trove.

Now, as Interpol searches for the collection on the illegal antiquities markets, questions are still being raised about the nature of the theft. One thing most seem to agree on: The heist was an inside job.

That was what they call a bonus.

The war was to get the rest of the 112 tons of missing gold bars to give Chavez back his deposit gold that was missing when he called for it all back.

This sounds exactly what Jim Marrs discusses at length about the museum in Bagdad.

The Bagdad museum was looted by "unknown thiefs" and some of the priceless articles are now gone forever to some unknown location, aka the last seen in the Indiana Jones movie.
