A useful reminder

At TalkLeft they're talking about the negotiated release of Yaser Hamdi, who in June got the Supreme Court to declare that enemy combatants could not be detained indefinitely. One of the conditions of his release is that he renounce his U.S. citizenship (he was born in Louisiana).

One commenter says no big deal, "Hamdi is an American citizen only by accident of birth."

To which another responds, "From one's own point of view we are all American by an accident of birth?"
