An American -- until told she wasn't

We can not have a War on Terrorism, but we can have a War on Obesity, we ship 86 year old men overseas for a war crimes trial in which no witness can be found to testify against him, yet we can't try KSM in Guantanimo we can't seem to deport the millions of illegal aliens including Obama's Aunt out of the United States but we have no trouble ordering a peaceful woman, a wife of an American Citizen and mother of another out of the country to which she was legally admitted in 1981. This is an obscene misuse of powere but is not unusual in this climate of "do what I say, not what I do." the Chicago Tribune writes...
