Al Qaeda fund raising on TV

Strategy Page:

Borrowing yet another technique from other non-profit organizations, al Qaeda has gone on television and appealed for donations. Pointing out that the organization has thousands of gunmen and suicide bombers on the payroll, and a severe cash shortage in Afghanistan, .the leader of al Qaeda forces in Afghanistan, Shiek Mustafa Abu al Yazid, made the plea recently on al Jazeera television.



Al Yazid also warned donors to only give cash to authorized representatives of al Qaeda. Apparently there have been others who have been collecting money for al Qaeda, money which never reached the organization....

...
The post does not explain why al Jazeera permitted the appeal for funds, but it does suggest that al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan is still having severe cash flow problems and they are not getting enough money from the kidnapping and oil thefts in Iraq.
