Most people would assume, as I did, that Western Union was cooperating with the USG on counter-terrorism. The big difference is that Western Union actually made it possible for them to track people in real-time.

Moon of Alabama, who never has done a single financial investigation, is woefully ignorant on this part. The details exposed by Suskind are Top Secret and compartmented.
