Al Quaeda's guide to unethical investing 

An interesting short piece, alleging that al Quaeda has been laundering money it earns from drug trade using the helping hand of the Chinese secret service. The money is invested in defence and technology blue-chip companies on the Pacific Rim (including in Australia) and the proceeds used to finance further terrorist activity.

All the conspiracy enthusiasts will be delighted to know that even the spy software "Promis" makes an appearance in the story - sold to the Russians by the KGB agent Richard Hanssen, then resold onto bin Laden, and now used in al Quaeda's money laundering operations.
