To Sarah Good, the first victim of the Salem Witchcraft Trials, Y1692

"An American citizen of Pakistani descent named Timothy McVey apparently pissed off by the WacoTX live burning of 80 Branch Davidians and also with the indiscriminant drone killing of the Pakistani people had planted a self-made bomb on the NY Times Square. The bomb did not explode and Mr. McVey was quickly apprehended. He confessed that he was trained by Al- Qaeda. Senator Lieberman from CT is introducing a new Bill making it possible to take away the US citizenship in administrative order upon suspicion of a person being collaborative with terrorists"

Anything wrong with this paragraph above? Ah, yes, the actual person's name was Faisal Shahzad and he did not care for Branch Davidians. He did not kill 160 people, though. Timothy McVey did. In the balance of killing and subsequent retributions we can start with 80 Branch Davidians, go to 160 in Oklahoma City, slide to 3000 on 9/11, leap to a million or so in Iraq and Afghanistan, make a U- turn at about 8000 coalition official casualties in two wars, get over a small bump of drone killings under enlightened Obama and land on ZERO on the NY Times Square. That's where Senator Lieberman suddenly emerges like that little Devil from the snuffbox and proposes a "convenience Bill'- the way to take away the citizenship administratively, proclaim a person a witch.

Oh, yes. In the Medieval Europe and in Salem as soon as a person was accused of witchcraft (!) the property of such person was confiscated and sold at auction effectively rendering that person non- existent. That was, of course, practiced by Soviet government when people were seized en-masse and by Hitler's government when it gassed the numerous ethnic brothers of Senator Lieberman. He of all people should know about the Wanzee decision in 1943 when all the Jews in Germany and occupied territories were officially proclaimed not the subjects of any judicial system anymore but the subjects of only Gestapo, thus losing even the ephemeral citizenship of theirs. Mr. Lieberman, say hello to your spiritual predecessor, the one Ernst Kaltenbrunner.
