                Notice of September 11, 2012

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Persons Who Commit, Threaten To Commit, or Support 
                Terrorism

                On September 23, 2001, by Executive Order 13224, the 
                President declared a national emergency with respect to 
                persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support 
                terrorism, pursuant to the International Emergency 
                Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706). The 
                President took this action to deal with the unusual and 
                extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign 
                policy, and economy of the United States constituted by 
                the grave acts of terrorism and threats of terrorism 
                committed by foreign terrorists, including the 
                terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, in New York 
                and Pennsylvania and against the Pentagon, and the 
                continuing and immediate threat of further attacks 
                against United States nationals or the United States. 
                Because the actions of these persons who commit, 
                threaten to commit, or support terrorism continue to 
                pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
                national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
                United States, the national emergency declared on 
                September 23, 2001, and the measures adopted on that 
                date to deal with that emergency, must continue in 
                effect beyond September 23, 2012. Therefore, in 
                accordance with section 202(d) of the National 
                Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing 
                for 1 year the national emergency with respect to 
                persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support 
                terrorism.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    Washington, September 11, 2012.
