More comments on yesterday's US Supreme Court opinion

Here are two more links to comments on yesterday's Supreme Court Opinion upholding the criminalization of "material support." I will keep adding links to this post if I see more from now on.

Go here for a comment by Jonathan Turley, in which he makes the following very interesting point: "Solicitor General Elena Kagan argued the case herself, but took such an extremist position that even Roberts balked: “The government is wrong that the only thing actually at issue in this litigation is conduct” and not speech. As a limit on potential abuse, the Court insisted that only conduct directed by such groups would be covered and not “independent advocacy.” That line of distinction, however, was left maddeningly vague and will likely cause considerable uncertainty in the lower courts."
