Anti-money laundering measures and the fight against terrorism

Recent international events show it enough, tracking international financial transactions is essential to maintain the security of the Countries and the States. 

Anti-money laundering measures, originally created to fight against international drug trafficking and against terrorism, today see their legitimacy affirmed by the fight against what might be called the massive terrorism or terrorist war.

More than ever, money is the fuel of war. This is why the military and the countries use AML to undermine the efficiency of the terrorist attacks and make it as primary weapon in the war on terror. 

The question is when and how to implement and develop these essential steps without threatening the flow of international financial transactions.

Obviously no one has a complete and detailed response.

It is perhaps this uncertainty that terrorist groups also seek to maintain as their weapon of terror.
