According to dictionary.com here are the definitions of treason. There are 3 entries:

trea·son pronunciation of "Treason" ( P ) (trzn)

1. Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
2. A betrayal of trust or confidence.

Main Entry: trea·son
Pronunciation: 'trEz-&noun
Function: noun
Etymology: Anglo-French treison crime of violence against a person to whom allegiance is owed, literally, betrayal, from Old French traïson, from traïr to betray, from Latin tradere to hand over, surrender
: the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one's country or of assisting its enemies in war; specifically : the act of levying war against the United States or adhering to or giving aid and comfort to its enemies by one who owes it allegiance —trea·son·ous /-&s/ adjective

n 1: a crime that undermines the offender's government [syn: high treason, lese majesty] 2: disloyalty by virtue of subversive behavior [syn: subversiveness, traitorousness] 3: an act of deliberate betrayal [syn: treachery, betrayal, perfidy]

The reason why I put those definitions is someone who I haven't talked about for a bit, Pat Robertson, said on his 700 Club show on Decemenber 7 that Democrats are committing treason for speaking out against the war in Iraq.

Now it's funny how this same logic can apply to Bush.

Valerie Plame, The whole Iraq War (If you look at the definition under noun which is a crime the undermines the offender's government as well as disloyalty by virtue of subversive behavior)

But of course republicans don't even see the facts here and just go on their own merry way in denial.

Sad isn't it??
