You said, or at least strongly implied, that USA does not use bloodline descent, you have to be born there. This is, as you went to helpfully point out, wrong, although you did it while still insisting you were right.

You did not use the shorthand "born in the USA", which in any event is not the principle behind USA law.

Care to try again?
Rubbish. I was talking specifically to do with the circumstances around Begum. So it was not necessary to spell out the exceptions to US nationality law.

Born in the USA is indeed the principle that drives USA nationality laws.

Go on, bore us all about, suppose a baby is born midflight, etc, etc.

You either do not understand legal priniciples or you do but just want to be obstreperous.

Had you merely been adding to the comment or pointing out an exception, you wouldn't have needed to descend into abuse and insults on a personal level.

Lucky you getting away with it.
