    This $60 Million, thats an awful lot of suitcases, now we know why the USAF sent a jet to Argentina, and the seizure of US Equipment was just a cover story, the Argentine Investigators needed access to the plane to hide the suitcases within the fuselage. No wonder a senior Government Official was present, to make sure the money was delivered onto the USAF Aircraft.

    Nice cover story though.
