Bank of Credit and Commerce International
The Bank of Credit and Commerce International , 1972-1991, discussed at length by Senator John Kerry and Senator Hank Brown in The BCCI Affair: A Report to the Committee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate.
In 1991, then New York District Attorney Robert Morgenthau described BCCI as "one of the biggest criminal enterprises in world history." 
- Journalists David Sirota and Jonathan Baskin, writing for Washington Monthly, published an article titled 'Follow the Money', which chronicled Kerry's work against BCCI. In their article, Sirota and Baskin state, "As Kerry's subcommittee discovered, BCCI catered to many of the most notorious tyrants and thugs of the late 20th century, including Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, the heads of the Medellin cocaine cartel, and Abu Nidal, the notorious Palestinian terrorist. According to the CIA, it also did business with those who went on to lead al Qaeda. And BCCI went beyond merely offering financial assistance to dictators and terrorists: According to Time, the operation itself was an elaborate fraud, replete with a 'global intelligence operation and a Mafia-like enforcement squad.'"
"It was not merely BCCI's deception that permitted it to infiltrate the United States and its banking system. Also essential were BCCI's use of political influence-peddling and the revolving door in Washington". 
The bank established the Third World Foundation in London, which published the widely circulated Third World Quarterly and paid special attention to the promotion of the Urdu language and literature through the Urdu Markaz located in London.
