美國波士頓觀察家報(Boston Examiner)，於一月二十八日新聞報導中指出，美國國務院為了深入了解有關「林訴美案」(Lin v USA) - 台灣人美國國民護照訴訟案 (Taiwanese US National Passport Lawsuit)的來龍去脈及因應策略，美國新上任的國務卿希拉莉克林頓，可能出席二月五日於美國華府哥倫比亞特區的高等法院上訴庭的口頭辯論。New Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may want to sit in the courtroom to learn about the case that she no doubt will have to deal with in the future.
One thing for sure is that this case will appeal to the Supreme Court. The reason is because the court order from US Regional Court or Court of Appeal is too low for the President of United States of America to execute.
Since 1952, destiny of Taiwan is already decided by the San Francisco Peace Treaty. The US Regional Court also confirmed that this is the only valid treaty for Taiwan. It does not matter people of Taiwan like it or not, and even Chinese in China or in Taiwan like it or not.
In the United States of American, no one can above the law, not even the President of United States of America. Since the court order from the US Regional Court has confirmed the validity of SFPT, the President and Administration Office has to follow this court order. That is why the Secretary of States has to know what and how is the progress of this case. Secretary of States personal attending the court is a symbol of how important and what priority this case is. Do you think an important person like Hilary Clinton who has nothing to do like you and me can go to anywhere we want or come to this forum to say something gossip?
