The Supreme Court really went out on a limb today:

The Supreme Court has upheld a federal law that bars ‘‘material support’’ to foreign terrorist organizations, rejecting a free speech challenge from humanitarian aid groups.

The court ruled 6-3 Monday that the government may prohibit all forms of aid to designated terrorist groups, even if the support consists of training and advice about entirely peaceful and legal activities.

I hope you picked up on my sarcasm.
