But I would say the terrorists probably do raise some funds by laundering it through legitimate businesses as well as through criminal activities.

Oh, I do agree...and I personally think the bulk of it is funnelled through the Saudi government. If it wasn't for their help, the Wahaabi sect wouldn't have near the reach it has today. I know it's not popular to say, but I do not believe the Saudis are our allies any more than the Red Chinese.

We back them not because we agree with the way they run their country but because their putative replacements are far worse. Its the lesser of two evils and a bunch of Saudi democrats aren't exactly waiting in the wings to take over if the monarchy falls.
