    Titles

    The USA Patriot Act has 10 (X) titles with numerous sections and amendments as well. The titles describe the specific categories under this law. Even though this is a United States document, it involves many global entities. Within the scope of understanding, the titles are detailed for both Americans to know and absorb the mandates of them and how they affect life. Very few government officials know the magnitude of the entire Patriot Act, however can possibly state what titles encompass their specific job area. In conjunction with the International Emergency Powers Act, his executive order and one of the titles in the Patriot Act, President Obama signed to freeze at least $30 billion in Libyan assets owned by the Qadhafi regime. The United States treasury at: http://www.treasury.gov publishes this to inform interested readers to know this will hold Muammar Qadhafi accountable. On March 1, 2011 the money was frozen because of violence against unarmed civilians and then to protect assets of the people of Libya. Questionable use of these funds was considered and is being reviewed.

    Opening Declaration

    Public law #107-56 107th Congress declares HR #3162 to avoid and bring to justice any acts of terrorism in the United States of America and around the world, working to make better; the law enforcement duties, the tools they use and for other purposes. This is the first line, paraphrased in the USA Patriot Act. The actual words when read are powerful, commanding as well as controlling statements of the government. Many congressmen and women who were elected by their constituents openly admit to not reading the entire USA Patriot Act. Perhaps the opening declaration is all they have read and absorbed.

    Coverage

    USA Patriot Act covers a lot of important information in the contents. A summary of the issues can be read here, however specifics need to be seen within the document itself since this is composed by the author and not word for word. Money is mentioned with terrorism in this law. The government intends to find out and put into place the means to punish any act of International terrorism dealing with laundering of funds or the money that is contributed to acts of terrorism. Each financial service system is bound by this law to report money laundering. This law closely looks at all foreign financial activities that might be prone to criminal and illegal action and use. Foreign officials will be affected by this law when assets are stolen from countries. Inquiring to local congressmen and women any questions about the coverage of this law will prompt them to read the contents in order to answer your queries.

    Bottom Line

    Everyone is affected by the USA Patriot Act and will be forever, unless it is changed, repealed or otherwise dissolved. If you own an out of the country bank account, scrutiny will be on that or those accounts. The USA Patriot Act supersedes the Bank Secrecy Act which permitted privacy in foreign bank accounts. This will be extremely monitored with non-citizens of the United States of America. The United States Treasury is permitted to view account activities that do not identify the owner of the account and funds. More attention will be drawn to anyone opening a bank account since specific identification is required by the USA Patriot Act. Specific persons who report suspicious activities are immune from liability when they file SAR report. The SAR is defined by http://www.wikipedia.org as a suspicious activity report.You may read the five sections of the SAR on the above website.
