Experts Suggest the CIA, Not Kim Jong-il, is Counterfeiting Dollars

by Klaus W. Bender Global Research, January 9, 2007 Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, Germany, translated by Armin Broeggelwirth, Watching America "Sources allege that the CIA prints the falsified 'Supernotes' at a secret facility near Washington to fund covert operations without Congressional oversight." January 6, 2006 Germany - Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung - Original Article (German) The American secret service, the CIA, could be responsible for manufacturing the nearly-perfect counterfeit 50 and 100-dollar-notes that Washington pins on the terror regime of North Korea. The charge comes after an extensive investigation in Europe and Asia by the Sunday edition of the Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung of Frankfurt, and after interviews with counterfeit money experts and leading representatives of the high-security publishing industry. The U.S.-dollar forgeries designated "Supernotes," which are so good that even specialists are unable to distinguish them from genuine notes, have circulated for almost two decades without a reliable identification of the culprits. Because of their extraordinary quality, experts assume that some country must be behind the enterprise. The administration of George W. Bush officially accused Pyongyang of the deed in the autumn of 2005, derailing Six-Party Talks on Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program. Since then, tensions on the Korean Peninsula have increased considerably. America charges that North Korea is financing its rocket and nuclear weapons program with the counterfeit "Supernotes." North Korea is one of the world's poorest nations and lacks the technological capability to produce notes of such high quality. According to the Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung, North Korea is at present unable to even produce the won [the North Korean currency]. The sources, which do not wish to be identified, allege that the CIA prints the falsified "Supernotes" at a secret facility near Washington to fund covert operations without Congressional oversight.

"The charge comes after an extensive investigation in Europe and Asia by the Sunday edition of the Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung of Frankfurt, and after interviews with counterfeit money experts and leading representatives of the high-security publishing industry." Considering that there has never been any indication or even a remote clue that the CIA has ever done this, I'd like to know how these "experts" suddenly deemed that the CIA is doing it. Let's use a little common sense, if the US was pulling a covert operation like this, with fed money, they would NOT use the CIA, but the Secret Service as they are the currency experts. The sources, which do not wish to be identified, allege that the CIA prints the falsified "Supernotes" at a secret facility near Washington to fund covert operations without Congressional oversight. Some looney guy with no merit, nor any education to actually make this statement, therefore he does not want to be identified. Simply a newspaper trying to catch a story, without one credible source or reference to their "expert" investigation.

I am by no means a expert in these things, but it doesn't take common sense to know that the Secret Service would be in charge of making "counterfeit" dollars, not the CIA.

" -- Yes, the CIA has never done anything like this in the past, so it is this easy to dismiss.
