Suspicious: Central banking records destroyed by fire in Argentina

On Wednesday, a warehouse in Buenos Aires containing corporate and central bank archives was destroyed in a massive fire, in which nine firefighters lost their lives.

The facility was operated by Boston-based Iron Mountain Inc., which manages and stores data for more than 156,000 companies and organizations around the world.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

However, the timing of the fire is rather curious...

Technology Advice reported:

Just last month, for instance, the United States Supreme Court decided to hear a case on whether creditors could seek historic bank records from Argentina regarding the country’s default in 2001. Whether or not such files have now been destroyed is unknown.

Of course, this comes the day after the body of Richard Talley, CEO of American Title Services was found in his Colorado home.

Talley died from "seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head."

Though the coroner has ruled his death a suicide, it is rather difficult to see how he could repeatedly shoot himself in the head with a device several inches long into his brain, while remaining conscious to continue the painful process.

Talley was the fourth banking/financial executive to die by his own hands since Jan. 28.

The fact that the Bueno Aires facility had a massive network of sprinkler and fire containment systems, as well as its own private cadre of firefighters, combined with the untimely deaths of four top bankers, it would appear that rather than mere coincidence, powerful forces may be at work.

Perhaps, those forces are attempting to cover up just how dire the world's financial situation has become.
