4 billion squid

I've been wondering all morning about what will happen to the £4bn of US Treasury Bonds seized during drug raids in the last couple of months, if they turn out to be genuine. Will it be used to build schools and hospitals? Or improve the failing rail system? Or fight poverty?

Or will it sink into the black hole that is the occupation of Iraq? I have my suspicions.
