Bank sheist

According to an AP report in my local paper, on Friday thieves in Brazil netted over $ 67 million in the second-largest bank heist ever. What was the first-largest? Baathists nabbed $900 million dollars from the Iraq Central Bank at the start of Uncurious George's unwise invasion.

A fraction of that amount could fund a Sunni insurgency indefinitely.
