footnote 1: As a matter of practice, we designate all FTOs under Executive Order 13224.

footnote 2: FTO designation includes the immigration consequences of TEL designation, so there is no need to designate FTOs under the TEL. Several organizations were first designated under TEL and subsequently as FTOs.

footnote 3: The complete list of designations under Executive Order 13224, along with aliases and identifying information, is available on the Treasury website at http://www.treas.gov.offices/eotffc/ofac/sdn/sdnlist.txt. Over 350 individuals and entities have been designated under this authority. This chart only lists organizations designated by the President or by State for carrying out acts of terrorism, and does not list all the individuals, support organizations, financiers, and others included on the full OFAC list.

footnote 4: Organizations that threaten to disrupt the Middle East Peace Process are designated under Executive Order 12947 (al-Qa'ida was added to the Executive Order 12947 list by Executive Order 13099
