Did You Know...?

Friday, July 13, 2007

It seems that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has an inventory control problem of a mammoth proportion. After an audit, it appears that approximately 22 million dollars worth of equipment has simply disappeared. Poof, vanished! You would think that an agency charged with monitoring diseases would be keenly aware of the signs of kleptomania... Just a thought.

On the margin, while researching how this theft ranks with other high-dollar thefts, I found
this little gem from

Central Bank of Iraq -- Nearly US$1 billion is stolen on March 18, 2003, just hours after the United States began bombing Baghdad. This is considered the largest bank heist in history. (Source CNN [1] )

Pretty astounding! How fortuitous to have planned a bank robbery for that night. Talk about a major diversion!
