Here's the whole story straight from the horses mouth...
The General who was in charge of the WHOLE thing!
This link comes via Newshound Guru Chattels ...
It all started in 2003-04...U.S. General Hugh Tant III was asked to become the Director of the Iraqi Currency Exchange (ICE).
You can read all about how the new Iraqi Dinar, you now hold, was printed and distributed throughout Iraq.
It's a very easy to follow Q and A session with the general himself. At the time he was inside the ICE room of Saddam's palaces.
This comes directly from The White House archives for George W. Bush.
- What the currency was originally worth when it was launched in 2003. It's worth MORE now.
- What you could buy a Coca Cola for in Iraq using the new Iraqi dinar.
- Where the money was printed and who printed it.
- Who REALLY controls Iraq's money supply.
- And a whole lot more...
