    If the issue is the sheer staggering amount of funds in one place, I’ll volunteer as a monetary dispersal tool.

    The linked story has been huge news everywhere but the USA.

    How baffling. It’s not like all the major USA news organizations are singularly controlled.

    The bonds were definitely phonies, but it’s still quite a story.

    OK, now the bonds are supposedly real. That would kinda sorta explain not detaining the Japanese businessmen. Still doesn’t explain this not being a mainstream story.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they were censoring it. It seems like the sort of thing that the media usually would play up.
