Acting under the authority of section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, as amended by Executive Order 13286 of July 2, 2002, and Executive Order 13284 of January 23, 2003, and in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Homeland Security, I hereby determine that the designated terrorist organization known as Jam'at al-Tawhid wa'al-Jihad, aka the Monotheism and Jihad Group, aka, the al-Zarqawi Network, also known as al-Tawhid, has amended its name to Tanzim Qa'idat al-Jihad fi Bilad al-Rafidayn and all the translations and transliterations of that name listed above. This group continues to commit, or poses a significant risk of committing, acts of terrorism that threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States.

Consistent with the determination in section 10 of Executive Order 13224 that “prior notice to persons determined to be subject to the Order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States would render ineffectural the blocking and other measures authorized in the Order because of the ability to transfer funds instantaneously,” I determine that no prior notice need be provided to any person subject to this determination who might have a constitutional presence in the United States because to do so would render ineffectual the measures authorized in the Order.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register.
