State Department: Members of Terrorist Groups Wouldn’t Automatically Lose Their Passports

We swore as a nation that we would never forget 9/11. But clearly we have, considering that just 13 short years later, our state department is totally cool with letting members of terrorist organizations hold passports.

Being a member of a terrorist group is apparently not grounds for revoking an American passport, Trace Gallagher reported tonight on “The Kelly File.”

On Sept. 2, when asked if joining a designated terrorist group is something for which you can lose your passport, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said, “It’s not as black and white as that.”

But yesterday, State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf said that being a member of a designated terrorist organization “does not automatically mean your passport will be revoked.”

Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney was on “The Kelly File” to discuss this issue.

“If you are a member of a terrorist group, you are aiding and abetting the enemy. Aiding and abetting the enemy is treason against our Constitution. So it would seem to me that automatically, even without having a trial, that your passport should be revoked. Automatically,” he said.

So being a member of the Tea Party will get you targeted by the government, but being a member of a terrorist group will bring no repercussions at all. It’s hard to tell what exactly it is about the Obama administration that leads them to make such ridiculous decisions — is it apathy, idiocy, or treason?
