U.S. Government starting to list WEBSITES as terrorist organizations.

SLASHDOT links to a story about the Justice Department now listing Web Sites as knwon 'Terror' Groups. Under U.S. law, it would be illegal to provide money or other material support to the designated Web sites, the people who run them could be denied U.S. visas and U.S. banks must block their funds. The State Department said it was yet clear how this would work in practice.

Is this national security or squelching free speech on the Net. Probably BOTH. But I don't have a problem with it.
