OMB Watch Report on Charity and the War on Terror
"Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, federal measures intended to cut off terrorism funding have imposed undue burdens on the nonprofit sector. An OMB Watch report released at the end of October, Safeguarding Charity in the War on Terror, addresses the unbalanced anti-terrorist financing regulations and guidelines that, according to the report, 'lack a basic understanding of how nonprofits function, and ultimately do not help -- and may even hinder -- the global war on terror.' The report then goes on to call for improving the current system, so that nonprofit organizations and foundations can pursue legitimate charitable activities."
