Two Arrested for Laundering Terrorist Money

It's been widely reported this morning that two mosque leaders in Albany, NY have been arrested for trying to help someone buy a shoulder-fired missile. The article goes on to point out that there was in fact no missile but that the two were involved in laundering the money for the purchase.

Seems like Ness's Untouchables principles are still at work. It's far easier to catch a thief if you follow the money.

Articles point out that the individuals had ties to Ansar al-Islam, although I always cringe at the term "ties." There are probably hundreds of organizations and individuals to which I have "ties." Does that mean I have influence over them? Does that mean they have influence over me?

According to the Fox News article, this is the second time people have been arrested for trying to buy a shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missile. The previous arrest, last August, nabbed three terrorist wanna-bes.
