The Raja Suleiman Movement (RSM), a Philippine-based group with links to Abu Sayyaf and Jemaah Islamiyah, al-Qaeda affiliates both, has just been blacklisted by the Treasury Department. Today’s measure also marks the RSM’s leader, Ahmad Santos, as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under U.S. federal law. The official press release is here. It cites Adam Szubin, the director of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, as charging the RSM with “reprehensible acts that include killing citizens and tourists in the Philippines to advance their terrorist agenda.”
