The Administration believes that most of the Husseins' $1,000,000,000 "withdrawal" from the Iraqi Central Bank.

David Aufhauser, general counsel to the Treasury Department, told members of a House Financial Services subcommittee that the soldiers found 191 of the 236 boxes of cash that documents indicate were prepared by Iraqi central bank workers for delivery out of Iraq.

Aufhauser said the 191 boxes contain $850 million in U.S. dollars and $100 million in euros. But he cautioned that it still needs to be determined if the cash is real or counterfeit.
