What Did The Russians Want With Gold Info?

TMFSinchiruna’s CAPS Blog has some interesting information about the ten recently arrested Russian spies. Seems part of the mission was after Gold information.

Blippit has more information about one of the Russians, Anna Chapman.

  1. I don’t like female spies.
    Not only are they very beautiful, they are very intelligent and they are very, very brave.
    What more could a man or a country want?

    The comment section in your link talks about the Bank for International Settlements in Basel Switzerland. I have never heard of it before.

  2. WO, The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is an international organisation which fosters international monetary and financial cooperation and serves as a bank for central banks.

  3. Well, another difference between me and beautiful, intelligent, brave spies is….
    They probably understand banking and money, which is why they were searching for gold info.
    I guess if I have read about the BIS, I assumed it was the IMF.
    Evidently they are not one and the same at all.
    I am off to do some reading about the “tower of Basel”, but first, one more question.
    Was the recent G20 conference in Canada a member and decision making body of the BIS?

  4. WO, good question. I don’t know the answer, I do some digging!
