Financial Troubles for al-Qaida

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Continuing our conversation about whether or not the Obama Adminstration is looking to focus war efforts in Afghanistan on al-Qaida, rather than the Taliban, we talk with Loretta Napoleoni in London. She is an expert on international terrorist financing and author of the book "Rogue Economics."

“Fighting this war in Afghanistan may not be the best option. Maybe we have to fight the war somewhere else, where the Taliban are raising money — which is, of course, in the streets of our city, where they are selling heroin that is supporting this new army of Taliban.”
—Loretta Napoleoni, expert on international terrorist financing and author of the book "Rogue Economics"
