U.S government.: Tell us everything you know!

Ed Snowden: Isn't that why I'm in trouble!?!

why are pandas exempt from RICO statutes?

Will never happen

Will never happen with the US Armed Forces occupying Germany while also holding their gold reserves in NY.

The US and other WW2 victors have been holding Germany close to their chest since 1945 and they like it that way.

Did they

ever figure out where all of their gold was? Seems I remember something about it not being there.

They know exactly where it "was"...

Problem is, where is it now? We told Germany they had to wait 7 or so years, etc... could not allow an audit, etc... not enough security, etc... What is Germany going to do? Threaten the USA? They are over a barrel forced to say thank you sir, may I have another.

My guess, we need 7 years to go out and mine it or steal it from someone else.

BTW - the last time countries called on their gold by asking to trade USD for gold the President (Richard Nixon) called them speculators and de-linked the dollar from gold. In effect, the USA defaulted on its trading partners.. oops.
