Dude, Where's My $500,000,000,000?

From an emailer:

This is Democrat Alan Grayson asking Chairman Ben Bernanke where the Federal Reserve sent $500,000,000,000 last year. And Chairman Bernanke doesn't know. He says it went to foreign central banks, but beyond that, he has no idea what those banks did with the money.

Whatever, it's only a half a trillion.

It would be nice to know where our money is going one would think. And with these "beyond Monopoly money" figures that went out to the world---why isn't there any form of accountability? I'll take a page from Bernanke's playbook. I don't know.
