Abstract:

This monograph focuses on the ways the U.S. Government can effectively fight terrorist organizations beyond simply trying to deny terrorist access to financing. Specifically, the U.S. Government can use financial information as the string that leads to all aspects of terrorist operations. By disrupting access to financial resources and, more importantly, following its trail, the U.S. Government through coordinated intelligence, investigations, prosecutions, sanctions, and diplomacy within the Interagency, private sector, allies, and partner nations, can enhance U.S. security, disrupt terrorist operations and mitigate terrorist effects on U.S. strategic interests. Findings This monograph demonstrates that the disruption of terrorist financing as part of an integrated and holistic approach is an effective way to enhance U.S. security, disrupt terrorist operations, and mitigate terrorist effects on U.S. strategic interests.
