Better Angels

"...all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ---Abraham Lincoln, First Innaugural Address

Senator John Kyl of AZ has introduced a whopper of an anti-terrorism bill in the Senate.  I haven't read through all of it yet but a quick perusal yielded this:

IN GENERAL- Whoever, within the United States, or subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, willfully participates in or provides material support or resources (as that term is defined under section 2339A) to a nuclear weapons program, or other weapons of mass destruction program of a foreign terrorist power, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be imprisoned for not more than 20 years.

I hope this is retroactive, cause I'm pretty sure some members of the current administration did
just that.
