By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws
of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic
Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C.
1601 et seq.) (NEA), section 5 of the United Nations Participation Act of 1945,
as amended (22 U.S.C. 287c), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,
I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that the
situation that gave rise to the declaration of a national emergency in Executive
Order 13129 of July 4, 1999, with respect to the Taliban, in allowing territory
under its control in Afghanistan to be used as a safe haven and base of operations
for Usama bin Ladin and the Al-Qaida organization, has been significantly altered
given the success of the military campaign in Afghanistan, and hereby revoke
that order and terminate the national emergency declared in that order with
respect to the Taliban. At the same time, and in order to take additional steps
with respect to the grave acts of terrorism and threats of terrorism committed
by foreign terrorists, the continuing and immediate threat of further attacks
on United States nationals or the United States, and the national emergency
described and declared in Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, I hereby
Section 1. The Annex to Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001,
is amended by adding thereto the following persons in appropriate alphabetical
Mohammed Omar (aka, Amir al-Mumineen [Commander of the Faithful])

The Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury,
is hereby authorized to modify the definition of the term "the Taliban,"
Sec. 3. Nothing contained in this order shall create any right or benefit,
substantive or procedural, enforceable by any party against the United States,
its agencies or instrumentalities, its officers or employees, or any other person.
