                President declared a national emergency pursuant to the 
                International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
                1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the national security and foreign policy of 
                the United States posed by obstacles to the continued 
                reconstruction of Iraq, the restoration and maintenance 
                of peace and security in the country, and the 
                development of political, administrative, and economic

                continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to 
                the national security and foreign policy of the United 
                States. For this reason, the national emergency 
                declared in Executive Order 13303, as modified in scope

                with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 
                U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the
