SIGN IT! - White House Petition To Audit U.S. Gold Supply
From The Daily Bail January 10, 2013 - 4:22pm
Petition was started yesterday.
If we can get this on Drudge, it will blow through the requisite 25,000 signatures in a matter of hours.
As of 12/31/2012 the US Treasury claims to hold 261 million ounces of gold at Denver, Fort Knox, West Point and at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. This bullion was last subjected to a full physical audit in 1953. The gold bars need to be assayed and weighed. Once the gold is verified the paper trail must be audited to determine who really owns the gold; i.e. how much has been loaned to bankers and dealers and sold or swapped to non-Treasury entities including foreign governments. The audit must include professional auditors outside of the Mint, Treasury, GAO, Inspector General and Federal Reserve system.

Of course, until we audit the Fed, all claims of fortressed gold are just heresay.
