Explosively formed penetrators (EFPs) are among the most deadly and destructive weapons used against U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. EFPs are powerful enough to penetrate and destroy Humvees and breach tank hulls. In fact, improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are responsible for half to two-thirds of Americans killed or wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

These banks concealed billions of dollars in transactions with their Iranian sponsors. These banks’ actions paved the road for the purchase of materials used to make the roadside bombs used against U.S. troops.
