“A charge of treason is exceptionally severe, and it is not one we bring lightly,” McNulty said at a news conference in Washington. “But this is the right case for this charge.”
I’ve never been comfortable with charging civilians with treason, as if there’s some higher calling everyone feels because they were accidentally born somewhere. If this idiot were a US soldier who turned bad I’d feel different. But he’s not. He’s not even a soldier for the other side, notwithstanding how George II feels, because there IS no “other side.” There’s just a bunch of murdering thugs with money.
He’s a thug. Treat him like a thug. No need to go all HMS Bounty on me.
