Last week, we brought to the public's attention a controversial 'missing' section from the official transcript of Alan Greenspan's interview last with the Council of Foreign Relations where he dared utter his honest opinion that, "Gold is a currency. It is still, by all evidence, a premier currency. No fiat currency, including the dollar, can match it." Well, it turns out the reason for the practically heterical section's omission was "a glitch in the live stream" and CFR has apologized and posted the full transcript. Interesting coincidence that this gold-loving, Bernanke-denying section was the only one to be hit by the 'glitch'; we are confident it's mere coincidence...
CFR has apologized...
To Whom It May Concern
Thank you for pointing out the gap in the video and transcript of our October 29 meeting with Alan Greenspan.
The error was the result of a glitch in our live stream. Full-length CFR event video, audio, and transcripts are posted unedited.
The audio, which was posted without gaps on October 29, can be found here.
Please excuse the inconvenience.

Council on Foreign Relations
Thanks Jake. And we most certainly understand: transcript "glitches", especially when the former Fed Chairman is praising gold over the US Dollar, happen all the time. You are excused.
