Kzh54: I’ve been wondering…..IF, IF, IF those 12 trucks were indeed loaded with the LD’s, and the private banks have been told to accept those on the 14th—

ChrisC:  that thought crossed my mind too.  It is kind of like when Clinton asked what the meaning of “is” is.  Perhaps they have been sitting at the banks but they have to “accept” them on Monday, which then means they are usable then.  I kind of think it is hinging on that word.  I doubt they have been driving in circles since then or at the drivers houses in the garage but who knows.

StephenMac63:   Imo, they didn’t go to banks……went to military bases because more security is provided.

Boxman:  I think the key word is “Private” banks.. i suspect the funds are being held, at present, in the government owned banks…just a WAG…with absolutely no proof Or as another posted, in a military facility..

Salamon69:  That makes sense Boxman.    And then Monday they will be delivered to branches in each city in smaller armored trucks.

ChrisC:  If you will remember, I believe those notes went out and we were expecting action right away, it was only the protests that threw a curve ball to that plan.  They most likely went where they were initially intended to go.  Why send them out from the CBI and then bounce them all over Iraq.  I am sure these banks have vaults.
