From the Kansas City Star, :
The U.S. Treasury Department today froze the assets of a Columbia-based Muslim charity, alleging that it and others had directly supported terrorists, including Osama bin Laden.
About the same time, about two dozen agents and officers of the FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force raided the offices of the Islamic American Relief Agency-USA in Columbia and began hauling away evidence.
The Muslim charity has been the focus of federal interest since at least 1999 and currently is the subject of a Senate Finance Committee probe, which is seeking possible links between charities and terrorist financing networks….
“The international offices of IARA were providing direct financial support to Osama bin Laden, al Qaida, Hamas and other terrorist groups,” said Treasury Secretary John W. Snow in a written statement. “Today’s action shuts down financial channels that were being used to propagate terrorist activity.”
