One of the secret US diplomatic cables we ran across early on Sunday detailed an incident where the former Vice President of Afghanistan Ahmed Zia Massood, was found entering Dubai with $52 million dollars in cash (in several large suitcases). It was picked up by a cooperative program between the EAU and the US Drug enforcement Administration. The punch line was that the guy was allowed to continue on about his business with no investigation of where he got the money? The cable was also classified secret so no one would find out.
The sad part is if the US Treasury department may have been able to confirm by the serial numbers on the stacks of freshly minted US 100 hundred dollar bills that the money was probably misappropriated somehow in the first place.
For his part Massoud has denied taking the money out of Afghanistan.
It's these little incidents sprinkled here and there in the cables that seem to indicate that all kinds of 'shenanigans' were going on behind the scenes in Afghanistan.
This cable was classified "Secret" by the way. Meaning that you "the American public" doesn't have a right to know where their money is going.
