The Opinion Journal has this to say:
The Logan Act makes it a felony and provides for a prison sentence of up to three years for any American, “without authority of the United States,” to communicate with a foreign government in an effort to influence that government’s behavior on any “disputes or controversies with the United States.” Some background on this statute helps to understand why Ms. Pelosi may be in serious trouble.

While reading one of my favorite blogging stops, I found reference to this site: http://islamthreat.blogspot.com/2004/12/kilroy-silk-attacked-with-slurry-told_08.html
I’ll have a permanent link set up in the blogroll in a few minutes but I highly recommend everyone who visits here go there and read it.
I’ve been working on some things in my mind about fear… the terror, if you will… with which we begin every day since 9/11/2001. Psychologists equate fear with two responses, fight or flight. We can either fight those who would kill us or we can run. If we run, eventually there will be nowhere to runÂ and we’ll die anyway. If we fight, we are just as likely to die. Or you can be a Dhimmi, according to this blogger. Your choice.
I’ll go more in-depth when I’ve worked through all my thoughts and research on the subject.
