Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to provide a concise overview of how forensic accounting is used to combat terrorism in the United States especially since the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks. A brief explanation of the work of forensic accountants along with a description of how these financial specialists help the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) combat terrorism in the United States will be provided. Additionally, a timeline of major terrorist cases since the 1920s along with references to a few famous quotes of Sherlock Holmes will be used to emphasize some of the analytical methods employed in forensic accounting. This paper concludes with a summary of the employment outlook for forensic accountants in the next few years
