[Federal Register Volume 77, Number 177 (Wednesday, September 12, 2012)] [Presidential Documents] [Page 56519] From the Federal Register Online via the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] [FR Doc No: 2012-22710] Presidential Documents Federal Register / Vol. 77 , No. 177 / Wednesday, September 12, 2012 / Presidential Documents [[Page 56519]] 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.
