More money shots

The Cash-bollah money scandal rolls on, with these latest entries, sent in from Aita al-Shaab from AP photographer Sergay Ponomarev. These bills look more "lived in" than the bills in the previous stories. Has Hezbullah learned from their past mistakes? Are these more convincing fakes? Or, as some are wondering, are these bills 100% legit?

As usual, I'll let you decide. View the full story for all of the latest pictures from the wires.

STILL makes one wonder why they are using USA currency and not their own country's? And why $100's? Is it true that the 100's are the most counterfeitted bill? Just very odd.
