levies high penalties against those offering "material support" to terrorists
Providing material support to terrorists should be illegal. That the concept can be abused by aggressive prosecutors is obviously a problem, but then any legal concept can be abused. I had a friend who is known as a kind and gentle soul, who was seen being attacked by a woman who rushed him and assaulted him and was prosecuted for assault and battery because he pushed her away from him. Pushed, not body slammed. So should we get rid of assault and battery or should we disbar the son of a bitch who brought charges which the facts on the ground collected at the time didn't support?
