terrorism -- U.S. vets sue banks

(Reuters) - Wounded U.S. veterans and family members of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq sued five European banks on Monday, seeking to hold them responsible for shootings and roadside bombings because they allegedly processed Iranian money that paid for the attacks....
The lawsuit was brought under the U.S. Anti-Terrorism Act, a 1992 law that permits victims to bring private suits against alleged financiers of militant operations.
It may not get anywhere, but I think this suit is on target.

  1. Hit 'em where it hurts. Though in the states, the courts levy such paltry fines that banking behemoths write it off as the cost of doing business.
