as I do on just about every Tuesday- at 8:00 AM Eastern Standard Time, I will be a guest on the excellent Helen Glover Show which is broadcast on Providence, Rhode Island’s Radio Station, WHJJ.
You can listen to Helen’s show online at:
Among other issues we plan to discuss the findings of the United Nations’ Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee that were made public on September 28th of this year, when the Secretary-General of the United Nations participated in a conference with the Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC), which was set up in the days following the attacks by Al Qaida against New York and Washington on 11 September 2001. Statements made during that conference and were subsequently made public stressed that despite “the real and significant achievements of the last 10 years,” much remains to be done at the national, regional and international levels.
They warned members of that world-wide organization about the dangers posed by the close cooperation between international terrorists and transnational gangs.
Here is a link to the article that was entitled, “Terrorists linked to organized crime in traffic of nuclear, biological materials:”
Here is an excerpt from the article that included a number of important statements:
It noted with concern “the close connection between terrorism and transnational organized crime, including trafficking of illicit drugs, money-laundering, illegal arms trafficking, and illegal movement of nuclear, chemical, biological and other potentially deadly materials.”
Urging all to ensure zero-tolerance towards terrorism, it called for urgent action to prevent and combat the scourge by preventing those who finance, plan, facilitate or commit terrorist acts from using their respective territories and bringing them to justice.
Member States were also urged to prevent the movement of terrorists, including the supply of weapons, through effective border controls, to ensure that funds for charitable purposes are not diverted to terrorist purposes, to implement comprehensive strategies to address conditions that lead to the spread of terrorism including radicalization and recruitment, and to take appropriate steps to prevent and counter incitement to commit terrorist acts.
Isn’t it interesting that the United Nations is calling for effective border controls to prevent the movement of terrorists and the supply of weapons while our own government refuses to take this fundamental and commonsense step to protect our nation and our citizens in this particularly perilous era!
Immediately after my appearance on The Helen Glover Show, at 8:30 AM Eastern Standard Time, I will be a guest on Don Griffin’s radio program, “Second Opinion” that airs on radio station KJSL from 8:00 AM until 9:00 AM Eastern Standard Time from St. Louis, Missouri.
