The Obama administration on Wednesday added the Pakistani Taliban to its international terrorism blacklist, targeting the group blamed for the failed car bombing in New York's Times Square and its leaders with financial and travel sanctions.
The group, known as the Tehrik-e-Taliban or TTP, threatens U.S. national security, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said in a notice published in the Federal Register. She designated the group a "foreign terrorist organization" under U.S. law.
Clinton named the group and its top leaders, Hakimullah Mehsud and Wali Ur Rehman, "specially designated global terrorists," a classification that imposes additional State and Treasury department sanctions.
