Neocon Joe Lieberman calls for the U.S. to strip the citizenship of Faisal Shahzad, the suspected Times Square Bomber. "If you've joined an enemy of the United States in attacking the United States and trying to kill Americans, I think you should sacrifice your rights of citizenship," Lieberman says.
So, if Shahzad had been American-born, like American Taliban John Walker Lindh was, he should be deemed to be no longer American? And then what? Can there be any more naked an attempt to circumvent the rule of law than this?
