Survey of Global Terrorism and Terrorist Financing: Hearing Before the United States House of Representatives, Committee on Financial Services, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, First Session, April 22, 2015   [open pdf - 3MB]

This is the April 22, 2015 Hearing on 'Survey of Global Terrorism and Terrorist Financing,' held before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Financial Services. From the opening remarks of the survey: "Today's terror organizations are more evolved, thanks in no small part to better methods of funding and financing their dangerous brands of hate, extremism, and violence. The threats to freedom and democracy posed by the Islamic State and groups like it circle the globe, and the United States can ill afford to combat these enemies on the battlefield alone. Any global strategy against terror groups worldwide must attack at their funding source. Organizations, no matter how ideologically fanatical, can't effectively function without requisite resources." Statements, letters, and other materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Seth G. Jones, Jonathan Schanzer, and Juan C. Zarate.
