- The Washington Times - Tuesday, November 25, 2003

The Times, in its September 15, 2003 editions, reported that Al Haramain was listed in a Presidential Order in 2001 allowing the United States to block the resources of individuals and institutions determined to be involved in possible terrorists acts, and that Al Haramain allegedly has suspected ties with al Qaeda. The Times, in its September 19, 2003 editions, had an editorial discussing the Al Haramain Islamic Foundation Inc. (USA) as an example of “suspicious Saudi charities.” Al Haramain (Saudi Arabia) has had branches at various places around the world. The branches in Somalia and Bosnia were closed at the demand of the United States, which asserted that those two branches were tied to al Qaeda. On March 11, 2002, Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill stated that the Saudi headquarters is dedicated to promoting Islamic teachings. The Ashland, Oregon,-based Al Haramain Islamic Foundation Inc. (USA) was not mentioned in a Presidential Order in 2001 or any other Presidential Order regarding possible terrorists acts. The Al Haramain Islamic Foundation Inc. (USA) has not been identified as being involved in actual or possible terrorists acts or with having any ties to al Qaeda. The Times regrets any inference to the contrary in the article.
