From pepe escobar…..more evidence of mubarak $40 billion dollar net worth. HOW MANY OTHER DICTATORS, THAT AMERICA PROPS UP, HAVE THIS KIND OF NET WORTH?  these dictators are stealing our money!!

“No crumbs for the Pharaoh though. According to a mix of UnitedStates, Syrian and Algerian sources his personal fortune amounts to no less than US$40 billion – stolen from the public treasury in the form of “commissions”, on weapons sales, for instance. The Pharaoh controls loads of real estate, especially in the US; accounts in US, German, British and Swiss banks; and has “links” with corporations such as MacDonald’s, Vodafone, Hyundai and Hermes. Suzanne, the British-Irish Pharaoh’s wife, is worth at least $5 billion. And son Gamal – the one that may have fled to London, now stripped of his role as dynastic heir – also boasts a personal fortune of $17 billion.”
