We are pleased to host a distinguished panel to discuss the successes and failures of the 109th Congress in combating terrorist financing. Our panelists will also share their views as to what the 110th Congress may be able to achieve.
Former Congresswoman Sue W. Kelly represented the 19th Congressional District of New York from January 1995 to January 2007. In 2001, Mrs. Kelly was appointed to the chairmanship of the House Financial Services Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee. In that position, she worked to make her subcommittee a leading force in Congress to improve the federal government's ability to track and disrupt terrorist financing activities. In 2004, Mrs. Kelly founded the bipartisan Congressional Anti-Terrorist Financing Task Force to bolster efforts to shut down terrorist funding networks. She held hearings to examine the implementation of anti-terrorist money-laundering provisions of the PATRIOT Act; furthermore, the committee held the first congressional hearing on the effort to track and freeze Saddam Hussein's hidden assets.
Mr. Stephen Kroll recently left government service after five years as Democratic Special Counsel to the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs of the United States Senate. Previously, he served as Chief Counsel of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) of the Department of the Treasury for over a decade. During his Senate service, Mr. Kroll was the primary majority staff member involved in the drafting of Title III of the USA PATRIOT Act. Mr. Kroll, a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, is currently a Lecturer at the American University School of International Service.
As the Senior Vice President of GAGE LLC, a business consulting and government affairs firm, Mr. Andrew Cochran advises clients on business opportunity in the counterterrorism, homeland security and federal appropriations arenas. His efforts on behalf of terrorism victims resulted in changes to this year’s Homeland Security appropriations act. From 2001 through 2003, he was senior oversight counsel to the US House Committee on Financial Services, then chaired by Rep. Michael Oxley. He is founder and co-editor of The Counterterrorism Blog, and served in the Reagan administration. Hudson Institute's Director of the Center for Eurasian Policy, Zeyno Baran will moderate.
This on-the-record meeting will take place at Betsy and Walter Stern Conference Center of Hudson Institute, 1015 15th St., NW, 6th Floor, Washington, D.C.
