I think this is a record…

OFAC updates a counter terrorism designation:

MJERESH, Abdulazeez Mlawwah Mjeresh; a.k.a. “Abu Fadak”; a.k.a. “Al Khal”; a.k.a. “AL-MOHAMMEDAWI, Abu Fadak”), Iraq; DOB 20 Jan 1968; POB Iraq; citizen Iraq; Gender Male; Passport A6108489 (Iraq) expires 28 Apr 2020 (individual) [SDGT] (Linked To: ISLAMIC STATE OF IRAQ AND THE LEVANT). -to- MIRJIRASH AL-MUHAMMADAWI, Abd al-Aziz Malluh (a.k.a.

    1. Not my face… OFAC’s. You issue a designation and then have to correct it the same day? And look what they screwed up – which terror group the guy was associated with! I’d be pretty embarrassed if I had done that…

    1. “Egg on face” is an idiom for “embarrassed”. I guess OFSI’s waves of “corrections” they’ve had to make because they didn’t keep up with EU sanctions changes are more embarrassing, given how long they were allowed to fester. But when was the last time OFAC made a correction to a listing, rather than an update based on new information? When you have to change a listing the same day, it’s a clear mistake. And it’s not like it was a misspelling – that I could buy. But they associated the listing with the wrong terrorist listing. That’s a big oops… I’d be pretty embarrassed if I were them…
