Under The Sun

Eric Muller of IsThatLegal sez:

"By the way, I think the short answer to the question of whether Arnett is guilty of treason is "no"--but not because he lent the enemy no aid and comfort. It's because the crime of treason also requires proof of an intent to betray the United States, and I can't see any evidence of that here, let alone enough to get to a jury."

I stand corrected: I guess this is one of those rare cases where stupidity is a legitimate legal defense.
