Suspended Citizenship

Good post from Saheli on this situation:

[T]he United States has denied re- entry to two American citizens—one naturalized and one-native born—unless they first agree to be interrogated by the FBI abroad without a lawyer and take a polygraph test. They have not been charged with any crime.

As always with S.S.R. Datta, the analysis is nuanced and, it seems to me, correct.

I just happen to be listening to the This American Life on Guantanamo tonight in lab. It's only tangentially related, but have you guys listened to this?
