This was discovered and concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and ammunition at a location near Saddam Hussein's old Presidential Palaces during a rescue operation and it was agreed by all party present to have the funds. This might appear as an (illegal or scam) but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hell hole.
I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely. Know one knows the real contents of the package as believed that it belongs to an American who died in an air raid.
