几十年来,有些国家一直在制造质量最高的假美钞,而美国不能在这方面指责他们

A modern storytime.The recent history of possibly the biggest fraud in modern history.Someone,somewhere in the world,has systematically printed millions(some say billions)of high quality,fake,US currency.

一个现代的故事时代。近代史上可能是现代史上最大的骗局。在世界上的某个地方,有人系统地印制了数百万(有人说是数十亿)高质量的假美元。

And gotten away with it.Across the world occasional individuals or groups get arrested,but the criminal mastermind behind it seems to get away with impunity.

然后侥幸逃脱。在世界各地,偶尔有个人或团体被捕,但背后的犯罪策划者似乎逍遥法外。

More than that?There seems to be nothing anyone can do to stop it.

除此之外呢?似乎没有人能够阻止它。

What follows is a summary of a wild tale involving Russia Mafia,Irish terrorists,the FBI,North Korean diplomats,secret bases in Syria,and bitchy memos from the Secret Service,that goes on for thirty years.The story of some banknotes SO convincing that they have been nicknamed the'superdollar'.A story that's going on to this day…

接下来是一个关于俄罗斯黑手党、爱尔兰恐怖分子、联邦调查局、朝鲜外交官、叙利亚秘密基地和特勤局恶毒备忘录的故事的总结,这个故事持续了三十年。一些纸币的故事如此令人信服,以至于它们被戏称为"超级美元"。一个流传至今的故事..

The sheer scale of it Over the next few years,from the mid to late 80's to the mid 90's,as the US began to investigate,the scale of the problem became clear.This fake currency was being produced on a fricken INDUSTRIAL level.Millions upon millions of dollars right across the Middle East.And then it started spreading.To Africa.Asia.Europe.Interpol began asking the US Secret Service for help-they were THE experts on Counterfeit US currency;yet the Secret Service seemed resentful of Interpol stepping in and inter-agency information sharing was not happening.

在接下来的几年里,从80年代中期到90年代中期,随着美国开始调查,问题的规模变得清晰起来。这种假货币是在工业水平上生产的。数以百万计的美元横跨中东。然后它开始蔓延。去非洲。亚洲。欧洲。国际刑警组织开始向美国特勤局寻求帮助——他们是伪造美元的专家;然而特勤局似乎对国际刑警组织的介入感到不满,而且机构间的信息共享并没有发生。

The Syrian Connection.Throughout the early 90's rumours grew that the money was being produced in the Middle East;increasingly zeroing in on the belief that it was all being done somewhere in Syria(above).New leads emerged.

叙利亚的联系。整个90年代早期,关于这些钱是在中东生产的谣言越来越多;越来越多的人认为这些钱都是在叙利亚的某个地方生产的(见上图)。新的线索出现了。

In 1996 the story broke in Britain that the government of Iran has tried to hire members of the Irish terrorist organisation,The IRA,to assassinate three leading Iranian dissidents who were living in exile in the west.As payment?A shed load of weapons AND about a million dollars in high quality fake US currency…

1996年,英国爆出伊朗政府试图雇佣爱尔兰恐怖组织爱尔兰共和军成员暗杀三名流亡西方的伊朗持不同政见者的消息。作为报酬?一大堆武器和大约一百万美元的高质量假美国货币..

Back then,as now,Iran was closely allied to Syria.Had they gotten the money from some cartel based somewhere there?Based on local intelligence,the CIA said that they believed there was a billion dollars in fake currency out in the Middle East.The Secret Service responded angrily and said the CIA don't know squat about fake currency and it was way,wayyyy less than that.The CIA inferred the Secret Service didn't know a damn thing about the Middle East and stuck by their figures.

当时和现在一样,伊朗与叙利亚关系密切。他们是不是从某个地方的贩毒集团那里得到了钱?根据当地情报,中央情报局表示,他们相信在中东地区有价值10亿美元的假币。特勤局愤怒地回应说,中央情报局对假币一无所知,事实远远不止这些。中央情报局推断特勤局对中东一无所知,并坚持他们的数字。

The rumours got so big that in 1996 during a state visit to Syria,President Clinton asked President Al-Assad(the father of the current President Assad)if he knew anything and could he please investigate…Clinton had a problem with this theory however.Basically the sheer scale of the printing AND the fact that someone was using what appeared to be a specialist intaglio printer(which ain't small)meant that it would be very unlikely any'gang'could get hold of one,let alone ship it to Syria,let alone set it up in secret…Added to that?The linen-cotton mix it was printed in?That kinda stuff you can't buy wholesale you know?The trail went cold.The Syrian Connection was a dead end.But the fake money continued to be produced.Years pass…

谣言变得如此之大,以至于在1996年对叙利亚进行国事访问期间,克林顿总统问阿萨德总统(现任总统阿萨德的父亲)是否知道任何事情,能否请他进行调查......然而,克林顿对这个理论有疑问。基本上,印刷规模庞大,而且有人使用的似乎是专业的凹版印刷机(这可不小),这意味着任何"帮派"都不太可能拿到一台,更不用说运往叙利亚,更不用说秘密设立了......还有呢?印花的亚麻棉混纺布?这种东西是买不到批发的,你知道吗?线索断了。叙利亚关系是个死胡同。但是假币还在继续生产。几年过去了..

Enter The Russian Mafia By now the fake currency was appearing all over the world.US Treasury reports began to identify Russia as a principle conduit for superdollars.They estimated as much as 20%of US$held by Russian banks were fake.The Russian organised crime cartels began selling off the fake money across the word.By 2005 we have our first arrests in this scandal.Yet they were confusing.In Manchester,England,a small cartel of criminals had started producing copies of the superdollars in such quantities that had they not been caught by a joint UK police/secret service sting operation they could have damaged the UK economy(they were printing roughly half a million dollars of premium quality fakes PER DAY).At last a criminal gang had been caught…But these were high quality copies of the premium quality fakes.The gang was a dead end.Then one of the commanders of the another Irish terrorist network was arrested trying to smuggle into Europe tens of thousands of fake dollars he picked up in Moscow.

进入俄罗斯黑手党现在假货币正在世界各地出现。美国财政部的报告开始将俄罗斯确定为超级美元的主要渠道。他们估计俄罗斯银行持有的美元中有20%是假的。俄罗斯有组织的犯罪集团开始在世界各地销售假币。到2005年,我们因这起丑闻第一次被捕。然而,它们却令人困惑。在英国曼彻斯特,一个小型犯罪集团已经开始生产超级美元的复制品,数量之大,如果不是被英国警方/特勤局的联合诱捕行动抓获,它们可能已经损害了英国经济(他们每天印刷大约50万美元的优质假货)。最后,一个犯罪团伙被抓获......但这些都是高质量赝品的高质量复制品。那伙人是个死胡同。随后,另一个爱尔兰恐怖组织的一名指挥官因试图将从莫斯科带来的数万美元假钞走私到欧洲而被捕。

In the US itself,the superdollars began to show up-leading the FBI to launch two sting operations(with the epic names'Operation Royal Charm'and'Operation Smoking Dragon')leading to attests of dozens of people and millions in fake currency being seized.But again-these were criminals jumping on the superdollar bandwagon.WHO was making them was still a mystery.By 2006 while the Syrian rumour was still ongoing,and the Russian aspect was now being exposed,when suddenly,a new suspect entered the investigation;one that had the US shifting their focus to the other side of the world.All eyes started looking at North Korea.

在美国,这些超级美元开始出现——促使美国联邦调查局(FBI)启动了两次卧底行动(史诗般的"皇家魅力行动"(Operation Royal Charm)"冒烟的龙行动"(Operation Smoking Dragon)),并查获了数十人和数百万美元的假钞。但是,这些都是追逐超级美元潮流的罪犯。世界卫生组织正在制造它们,这仍然是一个谜。到了2006年,叙利亚的谣言还在继续,俄罗斯方面也被揭露,突然,一个新的嫌疑人进入了调查,这个嫌疑人让美国把他们的注意力转移到了世界的另一边。所有的目光都开始注视着朝鲜。

From North Korea with love…How did North Korea get into this story?North Korean diplomats all travelled to their embassies via the Moscow Embassy.It seemed as if while in Moscow,they were picking up superdollars which they passed in their destination nations.Diplomats were arrested-but as they were protected under the laws of Diplomatic immunity,all that could happen was they would be deported.But the US authorities began spotting clusters of the superdollars circulating in South Korea and in the region of China bordering North Korea.All the evidence began pointing towards the rogue state.Had it been the Koreans all along?The case against North Korea took a dramatic turn when a whole bunch of North Korean defectors started turning up and describing how they were witness to North Korean authorities printing tonnes of the stuff.

来自朝鲜的爱......朝鲜是如何卷入这个故事的?朝鲜外交官都通过莫斯科大使馆前往他们的大使馆。似乎在莫斯科的时候,他们在目的地国拿到了超级美元。外交官遭到逮捕,但由于他们受到外交豁免权法律的保护,所有可能发生的情况就是他们将被驱逐出境。但美国当局开始发现在韩国和与朝鲜接壤的中国地区流通的大量超级美元。所有的证据开始指向这个流氓国家。难道一直都是韩国人吗?针对朝鲜的案件发生了戏剧性的转变,一大群脱北者开始出现,并描述他们是如何看到朝鲜当局印刷成吨的东西。

Things reached a head when a Senate committee report openly said North Korea was behind it all.The US had found its culprit.Between 2006-2009 this idea picked up steam.Immense pressure was placed upon South Korea by America to expose and denounce their Northern neighbour for this.They refused.They were not convinced North Korea was behind it.There was a problem with this theory.The defectors when pushed later admitted they had lied about the stories to win favour from the West.And the amount of fake cash coming in the region?It was clear North Korea had access to a LOT of superdollars.Not enough to explain away it's by now twenty year spread across the Middle East.Sure,we could say NK was slipping it's embassy staff superdollars across the world and it is clear they had access to a lot of it.But the evidence kept saying it ORIGINATED from elsewhere.Yet again the trail went cold.And still the money was pouring out.

当一个参议院委员会的报告公开表示朝鲜是幕后黑手时,事情达到了高潮。美国已经找到了罪魁祸首。从2006年到2009年,这个想法得到了推广。美国对南朝鲜施加了巨大压力,迫使其揭露和谴责北方邻国的这一行为。他们拒绝了。他们不相信朝鲜是幕后黑手。这个理论有一个问题。这些叛逃者后来承认,他们为了赢得西方的好感,对这些故事撒了谎。还有大量的假钞流入这个地区?很明显,朝鲜获得了很多超级美元。这还不足以解释为什么20年前它就已经遍布中东了。当然,我们可以说朝鲜在向世界各地的大使馆工作人员提供超级美元,很明显他们可以获得很多这样的资金。但是证据表明它来自其他地方。然而,这条线索又一次断了。钱还是源源不断地涌出来。

Today…This is still going on.But not on the same scale.Some retain the belief that North Korea is behind this fake currency.Others?Criminal gangs in Russia or China are responsible.But there exits one suspect whose name appears again and again in the narrative…one suspect named all the way back in 1994 as the culprit.One suspect who is probably the brains behind it all.And to understand how they did it we need to go back in time a little.

直到今天...这一切还在继续。但规模不同。一些人仍然相信,朝鲜是这种假货币的幕后黑手。其他人?俄罗斯或中国的犯罪团伙应对此负责。但是有一个嫌疑犯的名字一次又一次地出现在故事中......一个嫌疑犯在1994年就被指认为罪魁祸首。一个嫌疑犯可能是这一切的幕后黑手。为了理解他们是如何做到的,我们需要稍微回到过去。

Iran.Mid-1970's.Iran was a nation whose playboy king looked great.And ruled the country with an Iron first.The Shah was in power because the CIA has toppled the Iranian government and put his father in charge.He stayed in power by means of a ruthless secret police and a tough army.The Shah LIKED America.And America liked the Shah.So much so they gave him lots of aid and support.Everyone thinks that means guns and weapons.And sure it does…BUT aid can come in many ways.For example the USA allowed him to buy one of these…

伊朗。七十年代中期。伊朗是一个国家,其花花公子国王看起来很伟大。以铁腕统治这个国家。伊朗国王之所以掌权,是因为中央情报局推翻了伊朗政府,让他的父亲掌权。他依靠冷酷无情的秘密警察和强硬的军队继续掌权。伊朗国王喜欢美国。美国喜欢伊朗国王。所以他们给了他很多帮助和支持。每个人都认为这意味着枪支和武器。的确如此......但是援助可以有很多种方式。例如,美国允许他买一个这样的..

This is an intaglio printer.It is an old fashion method of printing and is used these days to make one thing.Banknotes.What they gave the Shah was a super-duper'this is what WE use'intaglio printer.It was imported form Germany at great expense.The United States figured-you are our friend.Let's us help you.Let us give you the same machines we use so you can print high class bank notes.But don't let us stop there.US currency is NOT printed on normal paper.Oh no.That would be stupid.We use a sophisticated cotton-linen based hydrid,which is durable,tough,and'feels'like currency.Here,they said,have a load of that.You know to print your currency on.

这是一台凹版打印机。这是一种古老的印刷方法,现在用来做一件东西。钞票。他们给沙阿的是一台超级复制的"这就是我们使用的"凹版印刷机。它是从德国进口的,花了很多钱。美国认为你是我们的朋友。让我们来帮你吧。让我们给你同样的机器,我们使用,这样你可以打印高级银行票据。但是不要让我们就此打住。美元不是印在普通纸张上的。哦,不。那就太愚蠢了。我们使用复杂的棉麻混合物,坚固耐用,感觉像货币。在这里,他们说,有一个负荷。你知道要把你的货币印在上面。

The theory goes as follows:the Iranian Revolutionary Government discovered the printer and paper and ink in Tehran after the revolution.They then sourced extra cotton-linen paper via Russia.This was the height of the Cold War;Iran after the hostage crisis was persona non grata with America.So they found what allies they could.And this included East Germany.They had some deep links with the East Germans.The theory is that intelligence operatives working for the East German Secret police(the Stasi)has supplied Iran with counterfeit plates of US currency back in the late 80's.

理论是这样的:伊朗革命政府在革命后在德黑兰发现了打印机、纸张和墨水。然后,他们通过俄罗斯采购额外的棉麻纸。当时是冷战的高峰期,人质危机之后的伊朗与美国不受欢迎人物。所以他们找到了他们能找到的盟友。这包括东德。他们与东德有着深厚的联系。该理论认为,早在80年代末,为东德秘密警察(Stasi)工作的情报人员就向伊朗提供了伪造的美元模板。

And that Iran has simply printed a fortunes worth of US currency;quietly,without much fuss,and just dumped it out there.It would explain how nominally broke ass Iran was able to pay for huge amounts of upgraded weapon systems.It was notable that during the 90's when Iran was a pariah with the US they started announcing they would only pay foreign payments to central Asian states in US$.Like…Where did they get this cash?This theory would explain away why the Russians suddenly had so much of the fake currency.The Iranians were paying the Russians for weapon systems with it.And it would also explain away the Korean involvement.The Koreans sold the Iranians a bunch of missiles.It cost millions.And then about half way through the payments the Koreans suddenly said they would accept no more cash payments from Iran.The rest of the balance had to be paid for in oil only.Sounds like someone realised they were being conned.

而且伊朗只是印刷了价值美元的财富,悄无声息地,没有太多的麻烦,就这样把它们扔在了那里。这就能解释为什么名义上破产的伊朗能够为大量升级的武器系统买单。值得注意的是,在90年代伊朗被美国排斥的时候,他们开始宣布只向中亚国家支付美元。比如...他们哪来的钱?这个理论可以解释为什么俄罗斯人突然拥有如此多的假货币。伊朗人付钱给俄国人购买它的武器系统。这也可以解释为什么韩国参与其中。韩国人卖给伊朗一批导弹。它耗资数百万美元。在付款过程中,韩国人突然说他们不会再接受来自伊朗的现金支付。剩下的只能用油来支付。听起来像是有人意识到自己被骗了。

This theory would also explain the Syrian link.The Iranians wouldn't just unveil these dollars one morning in Tehran-it would leave them in the frame.They would have needed a place to introduce the currency FROM somewhere not in Iran.Hence why Syria was identified.They probably used it as a conduit.If this theory was true-it would suggest that Iran has simply printed BILLIONS of dollars since the late 80's.Officially however…the United States has NEVER formally accused Iran of this.Which begs the question…Why the hell not?

这个理论也可以解释叙利亚之间的联系。伊朗人不会仅仅在某天早上在德黑兰公布这些美元——他们会把这些美元留在相框里。他们需要一个地方来引入货币,而不是从伊朗的某个地方。这就是叙利亚被确认的原因。他们可能把它当成了一个渠道。如果这个理论是正确的,那就意味着伊朗自80年代后期以来已经印刷了数十亿美元。然而,美国从未正式指责伊朗这样做。这就引出了一个问题:为什么不呢?

The case against the theory There are two reasons to not openly accuse Iran of this…1-I'm being sensationalist,picking up on sensationalist reporting and wild unproven theories,and the problem isn't as bad as I made it out to be(hey-gotta keep that in there)and Iran is NOT involved otherwise the Secret Service would have just said so…OR 2-America has a valid reason to NOT say the Iranians are behind such a massive fraud.Option 2 can only be possible IF there was a realistic reason for the USA to not scream at Iran.

反对这一理论的理由有两个原因不能公开指责伊朗这样做......1——我是一个感觉主义者,专注于耸人听闻的报道和未经证实的疯狂理论,问题并不像我说的那样糟糕(——必须保持这一点),而且伊朗并没有卷入其中,否则特勤局就会这样说......或者2——美国有正当的理由不说伊朗人是如此大规模欺诈的幕后黑手。只有在美国有现实理由不对伊朗大喊大叫的情况下,备选方案2才有可能。

Consider this…The US Dollor is THE global reserve currency.It's part of America's reach as a superpower that everywhere in Earth the dollar is the biggest,most widespread currency.It could be argued that much of the global economic stability we have is down to the stability of the US greenback.Now imagine if,tomorrow,President Trump exposes Iran for this crime?Imagine if he says'Iran has produced maybe BILLIONS in US currency;it's all fake;and these fake notes are spread across the world'?How would people respond?Sure.They could respond calmly and sensibly and moderately.Or they could react a lot LESS sensibly.They could suddenly response by of getting rid of their US$.Changing them into anything-Euros,Swiss Francs,Chinese Yuan,ANYTHING.

考虑到这一点...美元是全球储备货币。作为一个超级大国,美元是世界上最大、最普遍的货币,这是美国影响力的一部分。有人可能会说,我们所拥有的全球经济稳定在很大程度上取决于美元的稳定。现在想象一下,如果明天,特朗普总统揭露伊朗的这一罪行?想象一下,如果他说'伊朗可能生产了数十亿美元的美国货币;这些都是假的;这些假钞遍布世界各地'?人们会作何反应?当然。他们可以冷静、理智、适度地回应。或者他们的反应就不那么理智了。他们可能会突然作出反应,摆脱他们的美元。换成任何东西——欧元,瑞士法郎,人民币,任何东西。

几十年来,有些国家一直在制造质量最高的假美钞,而美国不能在这方面指责他们

We simply don't know what could result from stating this but the worst case scenarios are scary.Thus the President has a choice-say this aloud and potentially devalue the worth of the US$globally…OR…Sit and take it,inwardly seethe with fury,and describe Iran as'supporting terrorism and destabilising the region'.Yanno.Like Presidents Clinton,both Presidents Bush and President Obama did?All of which begs one last question…

我们只是不知道这样说会有什么结果,但是最坏的情况是可怕的。因此,总统面临一个选择——大声说出来,可能会贬低美元在全球的价值......或者......坐下来,带着愤怒坐下来,把伊朗描述为"支持恐怖主义,破坏地区稳定"。女名女子名。就像克林顿总统一样,布什总统和奥巴马总统都这么做了?所有这些都引出了最后一个问题..
