Faisal Shahzad, the failed Times Square bomber, was apparently not successfully trained by his jihadist buds in Pakistan. There is, however, little doubt he is an organic part of the worldwide Islamic jihad against us.
Shahzad has been charged with all sorts and sundry crimes, but not the one that perhaps is most appropriate: treason. This moke is an American citizen. He actively conspired with foreign enemies and attempted an act of mass murder against his fellow Americans.
It’s evident that Shahzad is American in name only. In spirit, he is a hostile alien. But he’ll get the full range of rights that our forefathers died to protect. That’s wrong, but that’s the law.
How about treating Shahzad as what he is: a traitor? Here’s the black-letter law, in the U.S. Constitution, Article 3 Section 3:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.
Seems cut and dried to me. Why bother, when it’s become evident that there’s more than enough evidence to put Shahzad away for the rest of his life?
Simple: Treason carries the death penalty. Not to worry. The squishes in Obamaland, most definitely including The Great One himself, would never put a reliable Democrat voter to death.
