Actually, no...The Consitution does *not* specify the taking of *arms* against America as Treason. Look at the passage again: ...or in adhering to
their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort...". By becoming "human sheilds", they are adhering to the enemy & giving them aid, even if they never
*touch* a weapon.
...Which should also include those US companies found guilty of selling Iraq any weapons or materials (of any kind), even if it's not against
"officially specific sanctions".
However, those groups that try to transport food, medical supplies, etc. would *not* be commiting treason, because they are aiding the civilian
population, not the military of the enemy. However, they should also provide security measures to those supplies so that the enemy *military* doesn't
just simply confiscate it before it gets to the people.

Is it true that when Fonda was paraded in front of American POW's in N. Vietnam, one of them handed her a note, and she then handed it to the N.
Vietmenese, who then beat and killed the American. If that story is true, sound enough like treason to me.
Yep...*If* it's true, it would be an act of Treason. Do you have enough evidence or witnesses to bring her to trial?
