TREASON FOR REAL

Today, as a service to the neoconservative pinheads who salivate as they listen to Hannity or Coulter spew their poisonous idiocy about “treason” at the New York Times or similar institutions they just don’t like…

Here’s treason for real, or as close as you will get without a sovereign state on the other side of the war. From The Blotter:

“California Man Revealed as al Qaeda Leader”

Now pay attention, boys and girls… This man, without renouncing his citizenship, has removed himself to the enemy camp and is providing significant aid in levying war…

Assuming you classify Al-Qaeda as an enemy waging war instead of an international crime syndicate, this is in fact treason…

The first two points are often overlooked. You have to be a citizen, and you have to “adhere” to the enemy or levy war. The fact it’s wartime isn’t enough, To quote statute:

“United States Code at 18 U.S.C. § 2381: "whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason”…

The Constitution defines treason but does not create the offence in law…

All of the “well known” convictions for treason in recent times weren’t: The Rosenbergs, Johnathan Pollard, etc. were convicted of espionage, not treason… John Walker Lindh pled guilty to conspiracy to murder… Treason didn’t apply, since he “removed” himself in peacetime.

Bitch Coulter has used the case of Iva Toguri D'Aquino, aka Tokyo Rose, in published remarks on the subject as an example of someone convicted of treason… Of course, she neglects to add the conviction was based of perjured testimony which was later exposed… Iva Toguri D'Aquino was finally exonerated and eventually pardoned… Something Coulter fails to mention…

So here you go, a real live traitor, if you can take him alive… Got to it, dogs of war!
