ISIS Money Gets the Bunker Buster Treatment

Time to put the stranglehold on the money with ISIS.
On Monday, defense officials told CNN that the U.S. dropped a pair of 2,000-pound bombs on a building in Mosul, Iraq, that contained potentially millions in currency belonging to ISIS.

Officials said that intelligence efforts had determined that the site, now reduced to rubble, was a "cash collection and distribution point” for ISIS, which is believed to take in tens of millions of dollars each month.
The mission seems to be an extension of the recent Defense Department push to pinch ISIS in its wallet by hitting the extremist network’s oil infrastructure.
I wonder why this didn't happen months ago. Or even years ago for that matter. Obama dropping the ball on stopping ISIS again.
