election. When they became US citizens, commonly they are supposed to denounce their original country, meaning losing their right to vote.
Are they US citizens or are they permanent US residents, or do they have special priviledges provided for by the * administration?

on edit
Have you ever heard of a Mexican American or a Japanese American vote in those countries?

CNN Aron Brown interviewed people tonight and the caption was Iraqi Americans voting etc.

3. most countries don't allow dual citizenship. I presume Iraqis came here
under the asylum clause, which definitely would not allow dual citizenship.

2. I think Mexican nationals can now vote in their elections. But yeah, it's
pretty weird. One more way to make the whole thing stink of made-in-the-C.I.A. bogusness.

4. It's the Republican Way..
This is the same system thta they use in Israel, where elitists like Richard Perle and Douglas Feith are permitted vote in order to create an advantage for the ruling class.

5. I also saw a press conference of a vice prime minister in Iraq on CSpan,
just like Aaaron Brown he said, he "predicts" people will be surprised at the turnout. (not verbatim, but in essence)
I think I smell a rat!
phantom votes that * & Co are so good at.
