"What is this legislation really about, though? Is there really a pressing need to revoke the citizenship of certain types of suspects?

"The reality is that the American criminal justice system has done a damned good job of dealing with terrorists, from the 1993 World Trade Center bombers to Timothy McVeigh. Hundreds of people are in prison in the US for terror-related crimes, and some have even been executed. There's never been a high profile terrorism case in which defendants escaped justice by exploiting their rights as citizens.

"The motivation for taking away the citizenship of terror suspects seems to be solely so we don't have to worry about their pesky constitutional rights any more. And note: the bill deals with suspects, not even people who’ve been convicted of any crimes."

Lieberman should be shunned by both parties as a traitor and a pariah.
