You need to be able to read for comprehension. This was passed during the 1982 Legislative session. That is what the end notes mean. That means it is impossible for this law to have been used in 1961, because the law didn't exist for another 21 years. You have hit scottwww's time machine problem just like the founding fathers would have needed a time machine to read the Vattel quotes he has posted throughout this thread, because that particular translation from French into English didn't exist until 1797.
Do you care to start a new thread explaining how time travel is real, and US Presidents (past and present) have secret access to it?
