Lieberman wants to strip citizenship of Americans who join foreign terror orgs.
(The Hill) -- By Jordan Fabian --
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) is planning to introduce a bill that would allow the government to take away citizenship from Americans who join foreign terrorist organizations.
The proposal would amend current law that bars American citizens from fighting for foreign armies at the price of losing their citizenship
"I think it's time for us to look at whether we want to amend that law to apply it to American citizens who choose to become affiliated with foreign terrorist organizations, whether they should not also be deprived automatically of their citizenship and therefore be deprived of rights that come with that citizenship when they are apprehended and charged with a terrorist act," Lieberman, who helms the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said on Fox News.
The move comes the same day Faisal Shahzad -- a Pakistani-American who is a naturalized U.S. citizen -- was arrested in connection with a failed plot to set off a bomb in New York City's Times Square.
Shahzad could be subject to the law if it passes.
If the legislation is made law, it would allow such people to be tried before military tribunals. Lieberman, who is one of the most hawkish members of the Democratic caucus, believes military courts should be used to try terror suspects, not civilian courts.
Lieberman plans to move the legislation as a standalone measure, according to aides, who said that does not preclude them from attempting to amend it to other legislation down the line...MORE...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
It's not just Muslims that should be worried about initiatives like this from guys like Lieberman. Tea Partiers and other limited-government and state's rights groups will also have to start treading carefully with Judeofascists like Commissar Lieberman and his comrades running the country. There's already been plenty of efforts to stamp the "terrorist" label on the Tea Party movement by everyone from Bill Clinton to the New York Times.
Judeofascist-run entities always have long enemies lists and insatiable desire to disappear their opponents and critics into a totalitarian gulag. Jewish Bolshevik Soviet Russia murdered millions, Israel has scattered and disappeared thousands of Palestinians, and the Israel lobby (whom Lieberman, as a card-carrying member of the Nation of Zion, is REALLY working for) has scattered and disappeared tens of thousands of American GI's and Iraqis in the Zionist-engineered Mideast quagmire.
Who are the "terrorists," again?
