Without stating an opinon on whether or not it is right to shutdown
these sites, let me point out two things that you seem to be forgetting:
1: The courts have repeatedly held that incite to riot is not a form
of protected speech. A logical inference here is that incite to
war is not protected either.
2: The US Constitution does not guarantee the rights of non-citizens
residing in foreign nations. Even if they buy a web page from a
US hosting service.
