[Public Notice 8821]


In the Matter of the Review of the Designation of Asbat al-Ansar, 
(and other aliases), as a Foreign Terrorist Organization Pursuant to 
Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as Amended

    Based upon a review of the Administrative Record assembled pursuant 
to Section 219(a)(4)(C) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as 
amended (8 U.S.C. 1189(a)(4)(C)) (``INA''), and in consultation with 
the Attorney General and the Secretary of the Treasury, I conclude that 
the circumstances that were the basis for the 2009 decision to maintain 
the designation of the aforementioned organization as a Foreign 
Terrorist Organization have not changed in such a manner as to warrant 
revocation of the designation and that the national security of the 
United States does not warrant a revocation of the designation.
    Therefore, I hereby determine that the designation of the 
aforementioned organization as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, 
pursuant to Section 219 of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1189), shall be 
maintained.
    This determination shall be published in the Federal Register.

    Dated: August 1, 2014.
John F. Kerry,
Secretary of State, Department of State.
