You just shouldn't go to an enemy country and trash your own country and be allowed to return home and remain a free citizen. FDR would have had her tried for treason.
Former US House Member Ashamed of US Policies
TEHRAN (FNA)- Former member of the US House of Representatives Cynthia Anne McKinney said she is truly ashamed of her country's policies.
Addressing an international conference dubbed 'International Coalition against Terrorism for Fair Peace' here in Tehran on Saturday, the former US House member urged Washington to avoid imposing its will on the world nations through the use of force, violence and weapons.
"As an American, I am upset with the policies of my country, but the measures adopted by the first Afro-American president of the United States has ashamed us all," she said.
"If there is no truth, there won't be any justice, and today the US policies are rooted in lies, injustice and war," she continued.
Noting the United States' aggravating economic conditions, she said the high rate of infant death toll in the United States is even worse than the European Union.
"The United States used to be a rich country, but now it is a country under hegemony whose economic policies promote plunder of the world," she added.
"(the late) Martin Luther King once said that the US has guided missiles, but has no guided man," McKinney added.

Not so ashamed that she doesn't come back to her comfortable lifestyle compared to much of the rest of this world lives. Either way, I suppose she is entitled to her opinion. Just makes her look hypocritical when she lives the same life she claims to be ashamed of.

No ~ I don't believe there is even a teensy weensy chance that is a typo. The twit has always mangled the English language, usually waxing incoherent.
Why do some stupid people have to be so militant about it?
