From the Background: "The U.S. government uses targeted economic sanctions as an impactful tool against international terrorists and terrorist organizations. Following the events of September 11, 2001, the President issued Executive Order 13224 (E.O. 13224), significantly expanding the scope of then-existing U.S. sanctions against terrorists, terrorist organizations, and their supporters. The combination of sanctions programs targeting international terrorists and terrorist organizations with those targeting terrorism-supporting governments constitutes a wide-ranging assault on international terrorism and its supporters and financiers. The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is the lead U.S. Government agency responsible for implementing sanctions against the assets of international terrorist organizations and terrorism-supporting countries. OFAC implements these sanctions as part of its general mission to administer and enforce economic and trade sanctions based on U.S. foreign policy and national security goals. In administering U.S. economic sanctions programs, OFAC focuses on developing sanctions regimes; identifying persons (individuals and entities) for designation; assisting parties in complying with the sanctions prohibitions through its compliance, licensing, and regulatory efforts; enforcing sanctions by assessing civil monetary penalties against sanctions violators; cooperating with other U.S. government agencies, including law enforcement, on sanctions-related matters and strategies; and coordinating with other nations to develop and implement multilateral sanctions programs."
