How do you lose...

Informant is intermittent, but still kicking:

In a speech to Pentagon employees on September 10, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld disclosed that over $2,000,000,000,000 (yes, twelve zeroes) in Pentagon funds could not be accounted for. “According to some estimates,” he said, “we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions.” link.

Confirmed by "media" but apparently not inquired into.

Flat out: It is impossible, not just unlikely, but entirely impossible, to misplace $2.3 trillion. Not happening. Not now, not ever, or at least not until we have Zimbabwean inflation.

Maybe there's a black hole sort of thing -- when money gets to be real money, like $2.3 trillion, its gravitational bolus self-conceals. Like it's bigger than God: everything it touches -- every one -- gets sucked in.

That guy that went to jail for whistleblowing the Swiss banks? What if it turned out some of the trillions were sitting over there? In whose accounts, Mon Sieur? Toss a few bill to Informant - kthxbye.
