Terrorist Assets Report: Calendar Year 2004 Thirteenth Annual Report to the Congress on Assets in the United States of Terrorist Countries and International Terrorism Program Designees   [open pdf - 119KB]

"Following the events of September 11, 2001, President Bush issued Executive Order 13224, significantly expanding the scope of U.S. sanctions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations. The combination of innovative programs targeting international terrorist organizations with those targeting terrorism-supporting governments represents a wide-ranging assault on international terrorism and its supporters and financiers. The lead office for the blocking of assets of international terrorist organizations and terrorism-supporting countries is the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). […] Since 1995, OFAC has come to administer three sanctions programs targeting international terrorists and terrorist organizations. OFAC also administers five sanctions programs targeting terrorism-supporting governments and regimes. Implementation of programs targeting international terrorist organizations has resulted in the blocking in the United States of almost $10 million in which there exists an interest of an international terrorist organization or other related designated party. More than $1.6 billion in assets of six designated state sponsors of terrorism also are located within U.S. jurisdiction. Of that amount, over $1.5 billion are blocked pursuant to economic sanctions imposed by the United States. Unless otherwise noted, this report provides data for the calendar year ending December 31, 2004. Section 304 of Public Law 102-138, as amended by Public Law 103-236 (22 U.S.C. § 2656g), requires the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Attorney General and appropriate investigative agencies, to provide an annual report to the Congress concerning the nature and extent of assets held in the United States by terrorism-supporting countries and organizations engaged in international terrorism."
