A Muslim American seeking asylum in Sweden claimed Wednesday he was detained at the U.S. government's request while in the United Arab Emirates last summer, tortured in custody and interrogated about the activities of a Portland, Oregon, mosque.

So some day when they come knocking on your door or you are taken into custody in a foreign country beaten and tortured because you won't comply with the information they are seeking, will you feel the same way. He was an American Citizen and his rights were violated by The Government using a third party to do their dirty work. This threatens your rights as a Citizen and you should be outraged rather then complient for some false sense of Security.

The operative term is "naturalized". In my opinion, as one pledges an oath to gain citizenship, one loses the rights of citizenship if he/she takes treasonous, or traitorous action against the U.S. You may have a U.S. born citizen, a la al-Awlaki.

AMERICA IS THE NEW SOVIET UNION

America is not a country of law and human rights, but a country where the government tortures and executes citizens without the due process of law. Citizens of America now fear their government. At airports in America, Americans are strip searched, groped and insulted, with impunity, by private security guards.

A naturalized citizen has all the same rights as an American born Citizen except to run for President. His only crime seems to be that he attended the same Mosque as certain other persons who carried out or planned to carry out terrorist acts. That is quilt by association and as far as I know that is not a Crime unless you conspired with those said individuals or had knowledge of those actions. After all, they didn't have any evidence of a criminal act and were actually seeking a mole to feed them information. Some people choose not to be involved with a government which has proved itsself to be no friend of Muslims. Totally Understandable!

American government no longer follow the due process of law but demand citizens prove the government is violating their rights. Americans fear their government while the American government does not fear their citizens. America=new Soviet Union.

This story is much ado about nothing. It's not like this criminal was a real American. He was an African muslim. Those people are accustomed to torture.....They expect it. At least he is no longer among the free and decent people of America.

Canada is a land of patriots like me, who will defend Canada against any invading army from anywhere, including America. Anyone can invade Canada, but no one can occupy Canada successfully. In the War of 1812, Canadians burned down the White House in Washington DC. Do not confuse the treasonous stealer of elections as representative of the whole. Canadians are a tough people who will cut down any invaders and send them home battered, bloodied and mauled. It is not for nothing GW Bush was scared to visit Canada while the Great Jean Chretien was prime minister, because the Little Guy from Shawinigan might well have thrashed GW in public television and booted him back to the USA with a drop kick! Cowardly GW was too scared to come here then.
Even our current bootlicker leader has told America that Canadian oil is going to China. No run along and hide before a recruiter asks you to enlist and you soil your underpants!!!

Quit pretending you are Canadian. It is embarrassing for me to watch you deny your true identity. I suppose you use hair straightener and bleach your skin, eh Tom?
