The Problem of Pensions

Times are tough:
CAIRO – Al-Qaida militants in Iraq made an online appeal Tuesday for new fundraising ideas, saying they are in dire need of money to help thousands of widows and children of slain fighters.

Insurgents of the Islamic State of Iraq — an umbrella group for Sunni militants_ have funded their operations in the past by robbing jewelry stores, banks and offices where the government pays out monthly salaries. But the group has seen its main source of money, funding from abroad, dry up, leaving the group strapped for cash.

What, is al Quaeda having trouble getting the debt ceiling raised too? Because I'd be happy to send them a bumbling well dressed but quite orange consultant to see if we can help them out...

I'm impressed that they see it as a revenue problem rather than an excuse to cut back on beheadings.
