What a shame it isn't displayed for the world to see.

We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

Very awesome, but does the army really need all of that stuff? If they only need $100MM to hit their target of $175MM, they can sell a few pieces of treasure (art) and easily raise it themselves, no problema. 

Hell, they could wipe out a chunk of the national deficit with some of those treasures.

That museum would also be extremely profitable compared to most.
