The United States government often puts tough financial sanctions on countries supporting terrorism, like Iran.
But what about publicly traded companies that do business with America's enemies?
According to the Patriot Fund, at the end of 2011, 697 publicly traded companies were doing business with Iran, Syria, North Korea, and Sudan -- all countries the U.S. considers "state sponsors of terrorism."
Surprisingly, the number of companies in this category has increased over the past three years, and many of them are well known.
Mark Langerman, managing director of the Patriot Fund, is taking a stand against these companies by education people on what "terror-free investing" is all about.
