   NOTIFICATION THAT THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY DECLARED WITH RESPECT TO

  CONTINUE IN EFFECT BEYOND SEPTEMBER 23, 2011, PURSUANT TO 50 U.S.C. 
                                1622(d)




 September 21, 2011.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
         Committee on Foreign Affairs and ordered to be printed
To the Congress of the United States:
    Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national 
emergency unless, prior to the anniversary date of its 
declaration, the President publishes in the Federal Register 
and transmits to the Congress a notice stating that the 
emergency is to continue in effect beyond the anniversary date. 
In accordance with this provision, I have sent to the Federal 
Register for publication the enclosed notice, stating that the 
national emergency with respect to persons who commit, threaten 
to commit, or support terrorism is to continue in effect beyond 
September 23, 2011.
    The crisis 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 on United States nationals 
or the United States that led to the declaration of a national 
emergency on September 23, 2001, has not been resolved. These 
actions pose a continuing unusual and extraordinary threat to 
the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
United States. For these reasons, I have determined that it is 
necessary to continue the national emergency declared with 
respect to persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support 
terrorism, and maintain in force the comprehensive sanctions to 
respond to this threat.
                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, September 21, 2011.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


  Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to 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, 2011. 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.
                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, September 21, 2011.
