The United States on Thursday imposed sanctions on Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) for supporting terrorism, abusing human rights, and fueling unrest in Syria.

“Today we have designated the MOIS for abusing the basic rights of Iranian citizens and exporting its vicious practices to support the Syrian regime’s abhorrent crackdown on its own population,” David Cohen, the US Treasury Department undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, said in a statement.

Thursday's sanctions bar MOIS officials from travelling to the United States, freezes all property MOIS owns in the United States, and prevents US citizens or companies from dealings with MOIS.

I wonder what property the MOIS owns here in the U.S. and just WHO does "business" with them

Do you think the travel restriction will actually be effective

The MOIS IS a secret police spy agency after all

The U.S. is getting their ducks in a row

Good catch...

While others are focused on the usually "He said, She said, Who struck Paul?"
This story is a bit more telling IMO. Cleaning house before possible hostilities?
