According to the October 3, 2001, testimony of former CIA Chief of Counterterrorism Vincent Cannistraro before the House International Relations committee: “a Saudi government audit of the National Commercial Bank, the kingdom’s largest, showed that at least $3 million had flowed from its accounts to bin Laden. One of Saudi Arabia’s largest charities, the International Islamic Relief Organization, acknowledged that it had sent about $60 million to the Taliban.”
