April 23 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama speaks about his executive order authorizing sanctions against individuals and entities that provide information technology that aid regimes in cracking down on dissidents.
The order is aimed at thwarting the governments of Syria and Iran in particular for their “malign use of technology” to track, monitor and disrupt anti-government protesters.
