Bin Laden--The gold bug

NY Times:

As an Investor, Osama bin Laden Was Bullish on Gold


An order to buy gold bars and coins with ransom money was in a letter that was part of the trove seized by Navy SEALs at Bin Laden’s hide-out in Pakistan.
With the Bush administration attempting to shut off his paper assets it is not surprising that bin Laden look to investments that seemed less vulnerable.  It is possible that the purchase of the gold could be traced to him which would have made an interesting story.
