This paper is a first attempt to identify the sources of terrorist funding with an eye toward the eventual identification of possible methods of closing those money pits, a large number of which are illegal. The first step is to identify some of the larger organizations that are more ingrained in the fabric of their locations and operate below the radar level; thereby escaping the scrutiny of local government organizations and, perhaps in some instances, escaping the watchful eye of federal government organizations.

Initially, as a first attempt to develop a base from which to expand, this paper takes a broad view of the topic simply to begin to develop an overall concept of the major players and to put the topic into proper perspective. Hopefully, future chronicles of the topic will have a more significant depth of information and conclusions.
