ASP Senior Adjunct Fellow, Danielle Camner Lindholm, co-wrote an article in Foreign Affairs which countered the argument of Peter Neumann that, “the war on terrorism financing has failed.”
The article highlights that while financial tools are not capable of completely solving the threat of terrorism they were never meant to, and are only intended to form a small part of a larger strategy to confront a variety of international threats.
“Peter Neumann paints an incomplete picture of the ways in which the United States and its partners have used financial tools to fight terrorism, crime, and corruption since 9/11. He underestimates the vital role of financial intelligence in detecting, analyzing, and dismantling dangerous networks. And he overlooks important progress in cooperation among countries, U.S. government agencies, and the private sector.”
