This is a good reason why NO immigrant Citizen need apply

All people in the United States government whether elected, appointed, hired, or part of a study group or think tank which affects or attempts to affect United States Policy must be 100% Citizens of the United States, are not political refuges or the children of political refuges.

Anyone who has a dual Citizenship, are Political immigrates, or the Children of Political Immigrates are unlikely to always represent the best interests of the United States. Who were the advisors to the President that pushed for the invasion of Iraq? Who were the advisors to the Senators who did not read the reports about Iraq, but relied on their trusted advisors? Who were the advisors that thought torture was OK?

I would never suggest that torture be applied to anyone. Having said that, and since the Current Occupant and his syncophants have decided that it is OK with them, I nominate Douglas Feith as the next one to receive the treatment until he gags out the name of the country to which he owes primary allegiance and for which he has been working since January 20, 2001. (Hint: I bet it starts with an "I")

I also wonder what the hell they have on Conyers.
