Citizen? Oh, really?

One of the Supreme Court decisions handed down today was for the case of Hamdi v Rumsfeld.

The question in the Hamdi case was "how do we treat American citizens in wartime?"

The question should have been "why do we treat Hamdi as a citizen in the first place?"

Clearly, it is past time to rethink the way in which the 14th Amendment is applied. Being born within the borders of the US should not, by itself, be the sole criterion for citizenship.
