Federal investigations have alleged that the SAAR Network, also known as the SAFA Group is a network of up to 100 nonprofit and for-profit organizations that are interrelated through corporate officers and holding companies to facilitate the funding of terrorist operations. A large number of these organizations share the same address in Herndon, Virginia. The investigation of this network by Operation Green Quest, which raided SAAR's Virginia offices in 2002, making investigation became public, uncovered evidence of material support to terrorists. In an application for a search warrant, U.S. Custom Service Agent David Kane referenced evidence of the SAAR networks radical activity dating back to the 1980s. No charges have ever been filed in this case.
