Here is how the Bush administration is progressing in their effort to strangle terrorists of of their financial resources:

"A report released last week by the General Accounting Office, the investigative arm of Congress, noted that U.S. law enforcement still has no clear idea of how terrorists move their money and that the FBI, which is the lead agency in tracking terrorist assets, still does not "systematically collect or analyze" such information."

"Governments around the world are not enforcing global sanctions designed to stem the flow of money to al Qaeda and impede the business activity of the organization's financiers, allowing the terrorist network to retain formidable financial resources, according to U.S., European and U.N. investigators."

And the Bush administration is a culprit. Here is a list of multinational corporations who are aiding and abetting global terrorists that got a punitive slap on the wrist from Treasury. The notables include ChevronTexaco (where Nat'l Security Advisor Condi Rice served on the board of directors), Citigroup (the world's largest financial services corporations, known to launder money for the Russian mafia and Latin American drug cartels), ExxonMobil, Dow Chemicals, and Fleet Bank (now Bank of America) to name a few of the Bush administration's cronies in the Fortune 500.

What were they doing? Exporting goods that can be used in manufacturing weapons and biochemical warfare and moving large sums of money around the world through secret private bank accounts, mostly with such friendly countries as Iran, Iraq, North Korea and Sudan.

Citigroup was fined a whopping $2500. The company is worth $250 billion, with income of $456 million from private banking (managing an undisclosed level of private banking assets).

Keep up the good work, George.
