Links to Terrorism: "During their opening statement in Sami Al-Hussayen's trial at the federal courthouse in Boise, Idaho, prosecutors put a new spin on the slippery concept of 'links to terrorism.' The Idaho Statesman reports that they 'displayed a chart' showing how a Web site that Al-Hussayen had helped maintain 'could eventually access 20 other sites with ties to radical organizations.'

"Talk about guilt by association. Given the interconnected nature of the World Wide Web (they don't call it a 'web' for nothing), just about any site with hyperlinks 'could eventually access' something sinister."
