Based upon a review of the administrative record assembled in this matter, and in consultation with the Attorney General and the Secretary of the Treasury, the Deputy Secretary of State has concluded that there is a sufficient factual basis to find that Jam'at al Tawhid wa'al-Jihad, also known as the Zarqawi Network and other aliases, has changed its name to Tanzim Qa'idat al-Jihad fi Bilad al-Rafidayn, and that the relevant circumstances in section 219(a)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended (8 U.S.C. 1189(a)(1)) still exist with respect to that organization.

Therefore, effective upon the date of publication in the Federal Register, the Deputy Secretary of State hereby amends the 2004 designation of that organization as a foreign terrorist organization, pursuant to § 219(a)(4)(B) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1189(a)(4)(B)), to include the following new names:
