Howard’s End: The Tentacles Of bin Laden

- Bin Laden has been likened to a Mafia don, but his organisation has no resemblance to the Mafia.

Some groups he chooses to finance, while others he ignores. There is no central chain of command. See... Howard's End: bin Laden’s Net Spreads Wide [1]

Aziz Choudry: New Trade Deals Reflect Old Agendas
