Dis­cus­sion of Islamist ter­ror­ists has point­edly omit­ted the per­pe­tra­tors’ links to the Mus­lim Brotherhood–the Islamic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion that spawned groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS. Por­trayed in the West as a “mod­er­ate’ orga­ni­za­tion, the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood was allied with the Axis in World War II and nur­tured as anti-communist cadre by West­ern Intel­li­gence (CIA in par­tic­u­lar) dur­ing the Cold War. Much of the pro­gram reviews and details the cor­po­ratist and free mar­ket eco­nomic phi­los­o­phy of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, an ide­ol­ogy that endears the Ikhwan to pow­er­ful polit­i­cal and eco­nomic inter­ests in the U.S. and else­where in the West. Among the events that has been obscured by the pas­sage of time is the open oppo­si­tion to the Trea­sury Department’s attempts at inter­dict­ing ter­ror­ist financ­ing money, on the grounds that it would “restrict” the free-flow of inter­na­tional cap­i­tal. Broth­er­hood ele­ments con­tinue to be used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of West­ern and Saudi intel­li­gence in places like Syria, the Cau­ca­sus and China’s Xin­jiang Province. Pro­gram High­lights Include: The use of ISIS-linked Chechen fight­ers in Ukraine; Saudi Bin Laden Group’s use of Sul­li­van and Cromwell as its gen­eral coun­sel; Sul­li­van & Cromwell’s work on behalf of the finan­cial insti­tu­tions that were (suc­cess­fully) resist­ing the Trea­sury Department’s attempts at inter­dict­ing ter­ror­ist financ­ing; review of the forced res­ig­na­tion of Trea­sury Sec­re­tary Paul O’Neill fol­low­ing the 3/20/2002 Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids.
