German National Designated Terrorist

The U.S. Treasury Department has added a German member of al Qaeda, Bekkay Harrach, to a list of terrorists who's assets are to be frozen and which American companies are forbidden from doing business with.

How effective are these measures?

Well, a Texas and an Oregon company are presently doing business with the Taliban -- also on the same list. After numerous complaints the websites are still up and as far as I know no action has been taken by the Treasury Department.
