OOTW: FROM JOEL WING...ANOTHER OBSTACLE TO CONSIDER WITHIN THE ADDRESSMENT OF CORRUPTION Wednesday, March 16, 2016 More On The Islamic State’s Participation In Iraq’s Dollar Exchanges It’s been reported several times that the Islamic State is taking part in Iraq’s dollar exchanges to earn hard currency.
At the end of 2014 the U.S. Federal Reserve and Treasury Department warned the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) that IS was buying up dollars at its auctions. The U.S. even stopped delivering dollars to Iraq in the summer of 2015 to push the Bank towards reform.
In response the CBI issued new rules, fined banks, and banned 142 money exchanges from the auctions. Iraq has weak enforcement however, so the Bank’s actions have not stopped IS from being able to buy dollars. In March 2016 David Butter of Chatham House testified to the British parliament on IS’s continued role in the Central Bank’s exchanges
He said IS was taking dinars from Mosul, sending them to Jordanian banks, then to Ramadi, and onto Baghdad using money transfers. They then used the dinars to buy U.S. dollars from the Central Bank and sell them for a profit, which was then sent back to IS areas.
Butter claimed that IS was making $20-$25 million a month from the dollar auctions. Ramadi has been retaken by the government, but IS probably has other routes to Baghdad that it can use. What Butter pointed out was that the group was still making lots of money off of the Central Bank.
It has not proven able to stop IS because the ruling parties, Iran, Syria, and organized crime rings are all making money off of the dollar auctions as well. The Bank would have to crackdown on upon all of those to get to IS. The CBI is unwilling to do so, because it can’t stand up to such powerful actors.
That means IS will continue to have this source of funding as other means such as its oil industry began to dry up in the face of international bombing. SOURCES Ellyatt, Holly, “ISIS ‘making millions’ by gaming forex markets,” CNBC, 3/3/16

chattels: The Liberation of Mosul Has Begun But who’s going to lead the fight to take Iraq’s second city back from the Islamic State? BY MICHAEL KNIGHTS, MARCH 30, 2016
chattels: " Admittedly, the Iraqi government’s announcement this week of its effort to push the line forward near the town of Makhmour, 40 miles southeast of Mosul, is a bit of a red herring."
chattels: " ................. Mosul will not be liberated next week, or next month, real progress is being made in the war against the Islamic State. "
chattels: " It has always been clear that there will be no defeating the Islamic State in Iraq without liberating and stabilizing Mosul. Iraq’s second-largest city, home to over 1 million people, is a major source of funding and manpower for the terrorist group. Positioned just 60 miles west of Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan region of Iraq, it is a major source of terrorist threats to the Kurds as well."
chattels: How The World’s Biggest Bribe Scandal Unfolded In Iraq

The now education minister, Shahristani, called to say he had never heard of Jibouri or Al Jarah, and that he had never taken a bribe as oil minister. He urged Fairfax Media and the Huffington Post to provide its evidence to the courts and Iraq’s integrity commission."
