Can you explain why the press and other media refer to Jerry Whitworth as a spy when he is in reality a traitor? Is it in the best interests of the United States to whitewash this piece of scum? F. W. Kayser Mechanicsville.

Based on the Amos Oz novella "Panther in the Basement," The Little Traitor muddles through the story of a boy's coming of age in a nascent nation. The man-child is Proffy (short for "Professor"), a Jewish lad on the brink of adolescence in 1947 Palestine under the British Mandate. The nation is Israel, on the brink of creation. The panther in the basement reasonably might refer either to Proffy's budding sexuality or to stealthy Jewish resistance fighters rising up against British occupation.

WHEN AMERICAN John Walker Lindh was captured fighting with the Taliban, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld remained vague about Walker's fate - especially on whether treason charges would be brought. One probable reason for Rumsfeld's caution: treason is rare, and we're betting U.S. legal experts are scrambling to research the subject. We've scrambled too, to learn more about treason, and present the following Palm Card, an occasional feature designed to clarify issues affecting our readers.

I AM APPALLED by the notion that an American could be swayed by the Taliban to fight for their cause. If this so-called American, "John Walker," is really an American, he deserves to die a traitor's death. All Americans home and abroad who conspire against this great nation should be executed and their bodies should not be allowed to be buried in the United States. There is plenty of land in Iraq or Afghanistan for these losers to be disposed of. Larry Collins, Philadelphia President Bush has repeatedly stated that anyone who harbors terrorists will be considered terrorists themselves.

Seventeen years into a life sentence for passing sensitive U.S. intelligence to Israel, Navy analyst Jonathan Pollard, who is Jewish, continues to polarize Americans and Israelis. Pollard's defenders see him as the American Dreyfus, a nod to the 19th-century French officer who was a victim of anti-Semitism in the military. His critics damn him as a traitor who damaged U.S. security. The Case of Jonathan Pollard, a documentary by Temple University professor Eran Preis and Drexel University professor Amiram Amitai, chronicles his controversial case and his alienation from family and advocates.

TO SUPPORT warrantless wiretaps by the Vietnam-era guardsman who never reported for duty is to spit in the faces of those who fought and died at Lexington and Concord, Belleau Wood, Normandy, Iwo Jima. George Bush is a traitor to the principles of our democracy, and anyone who agrees with this evil, lying, miserable excuse for a commander in chief as he attempts to undo in a mere six years what has been our bedrock for more than 200 simply does not deserve to live in a free society.

Don Cheadle, wiry and wired, delivers an electrifying performance in Traitor as Samir Horn, a devout Muslim born in Sudan, raised in the United States, and apprehended in Yemen while selling explosives to Islamist militants. Terrorist? Mercenary? Patriot? Samir's actions belie his words of faith, bewildering an FBI counterterrorist team (the laser-eyed duo of Guy Pearce and Neal McDonough) who chase him from San'a to Marseilles to Toronto, where Samir, twistier than a sidewinder, helps orchestrate a dastardly attack on the heartland of the United States.

Like his Ocean's buddies - George Clooney, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt - Don Cheadle is as socially conscious as Hollywood stars come. This is often evident in his work, like his Oscar-nominated starring role in Hotel Rwanda and the best-picture-winning Crash, which Cheadle appeared in and coproduced. (He's also producing the forthcoming Showtime series based on the film.) Now the 43-year-old actor has produced and stars in the espionage thriller Traitor, which opened Wednesday.

AS I READ your newspaper from front to back, I ended with more than a little tinge of sadness. Not one mention of one of the most important days in our nation's history. I wonder how the dwindling number of survivors and the relatives of those who did not survive but gave their lives in the fight for our freedom felt. Remembering Aug. 15, 1945, and the end of World War II. Tom Woodruff Oreland, Pa. After reading Jason Nark's article on Stacy Litz, I'm confused. Why is her stupidity worth two whole pages?

Louis Farrakhan, chief minister of the Nation of Islam, his eyes animate and probing, looked deeply into the cheering crowd before him and summed up his former friend and rival, Malcolm X, with one word - traitor. Not just anybody's traitor, though. Not white America's traitor. Not the federal government's traitor. Malcolm X, said Minister Farrakhan, pride and irony seeping through his words like warm honey, was our traitor. "And if we dealt with him like a nation deals with a traitor, what the hell business is it of yours?"

SEATTLE - Edwin P. Wilson, 84, a former CIA operative who was branded a traitor and convicted of shipping arms to Libya but whose conviction was overturned after he spent two decades in prison, has died. Mr. Wilson died Sept. 10 in Seattle from complications from a heart valve replacement surgery, said Craig Emmick, a director at Columbia Funeral Home in Seattle. Mr. Wilson, who set up front companies abroad for the CIA and posed as a rich American businessman, was convicted in 1983 of shipping 20 tons of C-4 plastic explosives to Libya.

WASHINGTON - When U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning walks into a military court Friday in Maryland, his many supporters and detractors will get their first glimpse of the soft-spoken Oklahoma native since his arrest in Iraq 19 months ago. Manning is the only person charged with unauthorized release of more than half a million classified U.S. military reports and diplomatic cables from around the globe, as well as a 2007 video of a deadly U.S. helicopter attack...

WITH MORE coverage of Occupy Wall Street, I keep hearing how inarticulate the protesters are, how they don't even know why they're occupying. I don't understand why we're supposed to consider this the downfall of the movement. The inability to speak with eloquence is hardly limited to the OWS folk. Example: My forwarding of an announcement to the email list of a longstanding Philly peace group about the beginning of a Philly occupation elicited this response: "Your movement is a bowel movement!"

For nearly two years, as more and more Iraqis came to view U.S. soldiers not as saviors but as jackals, Safa Ismael showed up for work outside the concrete barricades surrounding the U.S. military base in Mosul. He didn't quit when fellow interpreters were executed in busy markets or shot dead in their homes. He didn't give up when he was chased through the city, when neighbors screamed "traitor" in his face, when insurgents put his name on a list of collaborators. Instead, Ismael bought a gun and slept with it under his pillow.

SEN. JOE Lieberman once again shows the duplicity of his ways. With the Health Care Bill on the verge of resolution, he suddenly changed his mind and rejected the 55-and-over Medicare option, although he was quoted previously as being in favor. Lieberman is not an Independent. He's just a self-centered man only concerned about his own interests and those of his health insurance benefactors. He revealed his true side when he waltzed around with McCain and Palin two elections away from running as the Democratic nominee for vice president.

When Angelo Shin was new to America, he was taken in by his prosperous uncle Robert Chae, an immigrant himself, whose Center City beauty-supply shop had made him prominent in Philadelphia's Korean business community. But instead of following his uncle's industrious path, Shin fell in with a bad crowd. The "gangster wannabe" told his friends of Chae's riches, then helped plan a home invasion, authorities said. In the Jan. 9 robbery, Chae was beaten and suffocated with duct tape in his Montgomery Township home, authorities said.
