No Statute of Limitations on War Crimes

From Holden:

Take heed, George Bush.

A federal appeals court agreed that a man suspected of serving as an armed guard at a Nazi concentration camp and during forced marches should lose his U.S. citizenship.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that Adam Friedrich had admitted the World War II guard service and was under strict orders to shoot prisoners attempting to flee.

By ensuring “that prisoners did not escape from these unspeakable conditions, Friedrich personally assisted in the persecution that occurred in those camps,” making his 1962 naturalization “illegally procured,” Roger Wollman wrote for the three-judge panel.
