I think perhaps you didn't finish the commentary bit of your post ?

Frankly it's far more likely that these documents were forgeries being used to execute some kind of fraud.

I often carry $135bn in tinfoil notes, in case these kinds of things happen. If they get really bad, I can always enter the millinery business.

hardly. Hartford gets 3.4 billion in TARP Funds to sell stock.

The same money can't be in two places at the same time. Plus, they wouldn't be in Treasury bonds.

Single-link post to random blogger's speculations without support? That's a paddlin'.

time to close this thread or add the batshit insane tag.

Have I got time to take a dump in this disused thread before the officials come and shut the place down?
