September 24, 2001 Monday Late Edition - Final SECTION: Section A; Column 1; Editorial Desk; Pg. 30 LENGTH: 545 words HEADLINE: Finances of Terror
Organizing the hijacking of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon took significant sums of money. [snip] Washington and its allies must also disable the financial networks used by terrorists.
Much more is needed, including stricter regulations, the recruitment of specialized investigators and greater cooperation with foreign banking authorities. There must also must be closer coordination among America's law enforcement, national security and financial regulatory agencies.
Though some smaller financial transactions are likely to slip through undetected even after new rules are in place, much of the financing needed for major attacks could dry up.

not surprising. the media has long forgotten 9-11 ever happened and that Saddam was a terrorist-supporting muderous thug. just inconvient history now.
Another case of "down the memory hole." Absolutely sickening.
My first post (long-time lurker). I presume we are not allowed to post NYT articles in full. Let me know if we can, and I'll dump the whole thing in. Is there any special dispensation for Editorials?
Then again, I could just say it's in the public interest and post the whole bloody thing.
Email this to Rush and Brit Hume!
Yeah, but that was before the RATS lost two elections in a row. The NYT has priorities, ya know.
Nice work. Thanks.
"Exerpts from a NYT editorial just days after 9-11..."
Added some keywords being used on other articles regarding the SWIFT bank network and terrorists tracking.
And some others might find this very interesting.
Excellent discovery. This needs to be used.
Way to go, steveyp! Blow these hypocrites out of the water!
