John Boehner, who is wrong about everything, is right about this:
“If they are a U.S. citizen, until they are convicted of some crime, I don’t see how you would attempt to take their citizenship away,” Mr. Boehner said. “That would be pretty difficult under the U.S. Constitution.”
Meanwhile, perpetual bunion on the big toe of democracy, Joe Lieberman, is defending his bill thusly:
Citing with approval news reports that President Obama has signed a secret order authorizing the targeted killing of a radical Yemeni-American cleric, Anwar Al-Awlaki, Mr. Lieberman argued that if that policy was legal — and he said he believed it was — then stripping people of citizenship for joining terrorist organizations should also be acceptable.
So, of Obama, Lieberman, and Boehner, Boehner is the only one not in favor of shredding the Constitution.
Also, why aren't more liberals pissed about Obama's targeted assassination program? It's worse than Bush, for crying out loud. Bush only wanted to detain people indefinitely without due process, not actually kill them.... Hypocritical much?
