New York Times Front Page Story on OFAC

The Office of Foreign Asset Controls (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury rarely makes it into the newspapers.  So it's quite a surprise to see a front page story in the December 24, 2010 print edition of the New York Times.  The story reported there concerns U.S. companies that have gotten permission to conduct business with Iran and other countries that have been designated as state sponsors of terrorism.

You can visit the online New York Times to read the full story(or buy a copy from the newsstand).  The New York Times story is the result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and apparent lawsuit.  It's good to see that investigative journalism is not yet dead.
