The Supreme Court (actually) Upholds Law Banning Support of Terror-Linked Groups

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

The 6-3 ruling said 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.

Wow. 6-3. Serious.

N.J. Naval Base Under 'Lockdown' After Several Incidents Reported

DEVELOPING: LAKEHURST, N.J. -- Officials have locked down the Naval Air Engineering Center in Lakehurst, N.J.

Median Relations Coordinator Senior Airman David Carbajal says there were several incidents Monday which he is not yet able to provide more information about.

Carbajal says no shots were fired. No word on what an 'incident' is, either.

The lockdown means traffic can't get in or out of the base, which was where the airship Hindenberg exploded in 1937.

One of the base's main missions centers around equipment used to launch aircraft from aircraft carriers.
