Timmy Geithner Calls out the Terrorists

In a letter to the U.S. Treasury, Representative Peter King (R-NY) has demanded that Tim Geithner place Julian Assange and Wikileaks on the government’s list of Specially Designated Nationals, thereby making it illegal for any American citizen or American company to do business with them or to provide them with funding.  The SDN List is a registry maintained by Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control that seeks to impose sanctions against individuals and companies associated with targeted foreign countries, or independent entities that have been identified as criminal operations, such as terrorists or drug traffickers

What specifically does Specially Designated Nationals mean?

500.306 – Specially designated national.

(a) The term specially designated national shall mean: (1) Any person who is determined by the Secretary of the Treasury to be a specially designated national, (2) Any person who on or since the effective date has acted for or on behalf of the Government or authorities exercising control over any designated foreign country, or (3) Any partnership, association, corporation or other organization which on or since the effective date has been owned or controlled directly or indirectly by the Government or authorities exercising control over any designated foreign country or by any specially designated national.

Does anyone else find it problematic that little Timmy Geithner can destroy any person he chooses?
