The government's action means that anyone who has financial dealings with the Illinois-based Global Relief Foundation without Treasury Department permission can be charged as a felon. It is the latest U.S. government crackdown on leading Islamic organizations in a global effort to choke off funding for al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.
