Welcome to Oppositeville
"Moderates" John McCain (R-AZ) and Joe Lieberman (I-CT) urge drastic measures in dealing with a naturalized U.S. citizen like Faisal Shahzad: McCain doesn't think he deserves to get his Miranda rights. Lieberman says strip them of their citizenship:|
“I’m now putting together legislation to amend that to [specify that] any individual American citizen who is found to be involved in a foreign terrorist organization, as defined by the Department of State, would be deprived of their citizenship rights,” Lieberman said Tuesday.
And coming in to defend the radical leftist idea of not just scrapping inconvenient constitutional barriers? Um, Glenn Beck:
"He is a citizen of the United States, so I say we uphold the laws and the Constitution on citizens...If you are a citizen, you obey the law and follow the Constitution. [Shahzad] has all the rights under the Constitution...We don't shred the Constitution when it is popular. We do the right thing."There's your head-scratcher for the day!
