This scares me

From the Counterterrorism Blog's account of Steve Emerson's recent Senate testimony on terror financing:
At the hearing, Steve stated that "We are now behind the curve" in pursuing terrorist financing, and he described the current US government counterterrorism structure as a "massive 'Rube Goldberg' machine that works but could be 1,000 times better." He also discussed how several U.S. charities which funded terrorists overseas, and were shut down after the 9-11 attacks, have reconstituted themselves. He criticized the Saudi government's lack of diligence in halting terrorist funding.
