THE BAGHDAD JOB: IRAQ'S MISSING BILLIONS
Beginning in the earliest days of the war in Iraq, the New York Federal Reserve in New Jersey shipped billions of dollars in physical cash to Baghdad. The money came from Saddam Hussein’s assets frozen under global sanctions regimes and was sent to help restart the government and restore basic services. Much of it may have been used on the things it was intended for, but hundreds of millions, maybe billions of dollars are missing. As investigators are rushing to determine what happened to the money, CNBC tracked down the last American official responsible for delivering the cash before it disappeared inside the vaults of the Central Bank of Iraq. CNBC'sEamon Javers reports.
