More About Al-Qaida's Funding

The Asian Times has run an astonishing number of very thoughtful, very detailed articles about the upcoming war with Iraq. Here's another very informative article about money laundering and funding of terrorist organizations. They make the point that funding of terrorist groups isn't much different from traditional criminal enterprises.

I had mentioned a few days ago about the curious uptick in emails over the last few months promoting Nigerian-style confidence games, and wondering if there might be some connection to al-Qaida's increasing financial difficulties (as suggested by their attempt to get money for videotapes of an interview that they gave al-Jazeera). Hmmmm.
