Abstract: 
On October 25, 2001, the U.S. Department of Treasury announced a new investigative team that will target charities, non-governmental organizations and underground remittance systems used by Al Qaeda. Named “Operation Green Quest,” the new team will include prosecutors from the justice Department and investigators from several financial agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service, the Customs Service, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
