Mr Kar is described as a patriotic American who believed in spreading democracy around the world.
A former Navy Seal raised in the western US, he had gone to Iraq to film part of a documentary about an enlightened ancient Persian king.

I really wish we had better screening methods of new american citizens.
In Los Angeles, relatives identified him as Cyrus Kar, 44, a U.S. Navy veteran who lives in that city
These people should be tried for treason by military tribunal and shot or hung or whatever they do to traitors nowadays.
The actions of these people definitely fit the Constitutional definition of treason
they don't deserve our rights they should be stripped of their citizenship after they are shot for treason.[/quote
In theory, the act of taking up arms agains the US militiary resulted in the instant loss of their citizenship, making them simply enemy combatants.
this is intresting because it also says he was cleard by the FBI
Its entirely possible that Kar is in fact completely innocent, they don't state what in particular made him so suspicious. It is a little different from Lindh, who was captured on the field of battle working with the enemy. Their case is more like with Padilla, except that they were caught in foreign territory (whereas padilla went to foreign territory, met with terrorists, and returned to the US, there is a disctinction between US soil and foreign soil).
