Iraqi Insurgents Just Stole Half a Billion Dollars from the Central Bank

Robbing the banksters, great work!

Robert Tait reports from The Telegraph:
With this week's capture of Mosul, the al-Qaeda splinter grouping is believed to have come into undreamed of new wealth after making off with 500 billion dinars - £256 million - from the northern Iraqi city's central bank. 
The radical group is also said to have made off with a large amount of gold bullion from the bank, which was left unguarded in the chaos accompanying the militants' takeover of the city, which is one of Iraq's main oil centres.
Atheel al-Nujaifi, the governor of Nineveh province, said ISIS members had also seized many more millions from banks across the region. 
The newly-acquired booty has elevated it to the world's best-resourced terror organisation...
