Is there a way to use Active Directory to prevent certain user groups from within the LAN from FTP'ing (nothing gets FTP'd!) data outside to the WAN - say by closing FTP ports or otherwise. Implementing a Group Policy rule would be easiest.

If you are using Microsoft ISA server, you can. MS ISA comes with some built in application level filters which provide you the ability to block or allow a service based traffic such as FTP, HTTP, SMPT etc. This is all done by the ISA server's Filtering engine. ISA can be easily integrated with Active Directory for user authentication and access policy.
