US bill to link 'terror' to citizenship

excerpt from: US bill to link 'terror' to citizenship

Press TV, 7 May 2010

New bipartisan legislation introduced in US Congress says Americans involved in terrorist activities should be denied their right of citizenship.

If passed, the Terrorist Expatriation Act (*) would strip any American that provides material support or resources to foreign terrorists from their citizenship.

"As the attempted terrorist attack on Times Square showed us again, our enemies today are even more willing than the Nazis or fascists were to kill innocent civilian Americans [in WWII]," Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Connecticut, told reporters on Thursday, according to CNN.

"Our enemies today," he said, "are stateless actors who don't wear uniforms and plot against Americans abroad and here in the United States."

Lieberman, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee and a staunch supporter of the Israeli regime, argued that the proposed bill is the expansion of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1940.

Lieberman's Continuing Vapid Fear Agenda -- BOO!

Lieberman is once again off his meds and running loose. I guess his next initiative will be to introduce legislation to strip the citizenship of anyone who writes checks to the Sierra Club or ACLU or a labor union, since they do not function as strictly pro-business, pro-Israel, pro-war organizations, and are therefore frighteningly suspicious.

Where is the evidence that this would-be Times Square bomber is an "enemy" and not just a demented criminal or even (should we be surprised?) a patsy of some sort? A news article Thursday in McClatchy ( reports that intelligence officials claim there is no credible evidence that Faisal Shahzad received any serious terrorist training. One official said, "We've seen nothing suggesting that Shahzad received even minimal training, and everything about what he did suggests otherwise."

McClatchy news: "The U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials, however, said that the bungled nature of the bombing and the trail of clues that led the FBI to him suggest that he never received even rudimentary terrorist training or instructions on how to evade arrest."

But this won't deter Joe Lieberman's casus belli and general idiotic defense of defenseless positions.
