Anyone you know those guys -- the tin foil hats on -- you the last time anyone actually saw the gold.

But almost forty years of those the last time anyone in the government was allowed to audit what was in there.
So we started looking into it and -- you know to use our term is to decoded.
The most amazing part is we found the former security guard these to -- the gold.
And when He tells you what He thinks He was guarding you won't believe what comes out of his mouth and it's one of those stories we though there's no way it can't be weak he's coming back to one key thing.
If it's there why don't they let anyone see it and that to me is one of the crazies questions is this can't be answered and they won't let you see.
