Your Feb. 26 article on Lithuania's new president giving up his U.S. citizenship raises the problematic issue of dual citizenship in our country. I always considered U.S. citizenship law highly questionable in allowing one to remain a citizen here after moving to a foreign country, attaining citizenship there and then even serving in its armed forces. Now we learn that Valdas Adamkus apparently could have retained both U.S. and Lithuanian citizenship while serving as president, had he not chosen to give up the former.
Until we are prepared to recognize a world citizenship, it stretches the imagination to understand how one can be simultaneously loyal to two countries with sometimes different interests. Would someone please enlighten me on this?
