Court: What do you think it means?


Government: . . . Your Honor, we had focused so much on the phrase that was challenged by the plaintiffs, "substantial support' that I have not thought through exactly and we have not come to a position on what "direct support' and what that means.


The Court then asked: "Assume you were just an American citizen and you're reading the statute and you wanted to make sure you do not run afoul of it because you are a diligent U.S. citizen wanting to stay on the right side of -1021, and you read the phrase "directly supported'. What does that mean to you?"

Court: That's fine. Tell me what that means?
