NYT - Editorial - Finances of Terror - 9-24-2001
The New York Times ^ | September 24, 2001 | New York Times Editorial

Posted on 06/26/2006 8:35:39 PM PDT by steveyp

The New York Times

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.

[snip]

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.

[snip]

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.

[snip]

If America is going to wage a new kind of war against terrorism, it must act on all fronts, including the financial one.

Exerpts from a NYT editorial just days after 9-11. I pulled this from a LexisNexis search.

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.

Added some keywords being used on other articles regarding the SWIFT bank network and terrorists tracking.

And some others might find this very interesting.

What's the big deal? This is nothing!

If you want to talk about the real dangers to national security, it's Bush's minions like Cheney and Rove who leak the name of CIA operatives like Plame. Now that did serious damage to our intelligence gathering efforts.

I can see Drudge running it as a headline, and I'm sure Rush and Fox would love to get it. With all the nitpicking crap liberals never hesitate to use, it would be sweet justice to use the NYT's own words. They can't argue against that.

I believe that you can read the entire editorial here. It's not the primary source, so 'buyer beware'...

Quoting Eddie: "What's the big deal? This is nothing!"

I expect that to be the standard liberal reply if this editorial (hopefully) makes it to the media.

It all makes sense now.....

Washington should revive international efforts begun during the Clinton administration to pressure countries with dangerously loose banking regulations to adopt and enforce stricter rules......
The Bush administration initially opposed such measures. But after the events of Sept. 11, it appears ready to embrace them.

Yea. And shuting down the frigen NYT slimos. What are these guys trying to pull off. First they break a story that never should have made it to print. Then they try to expound words of wisdom. Who's kidding who. Frigen clowns.

"If America is going to wage a new kind of war against terrorism, it must act on all fronts." All fronts covers a lot. Unless the NYT didn't really mean "all" fronts.

I hope we hear about this article on Fox tomorrow. It needs to get out.
