...Adam Gadahn, a 28-year-old fugitive believed to be living in Pakistan, could be sentenced to death if convicted of treason, which has been alleged only about 30 times in U.S. history and has not been used since the aftermath of World War II.
Gadahn, allegedly "gave al Qaeda aid and comfort . . . with intent to betray the United States" by appearing in videos calling for attacks on U.S. targets, according to the indictment, which was handed up by a federal grand jury in Santa Ana, Calif.

Having a shared terrorist methodology, does not mean every nations share all their intelligence all the time. It also does not mean there is only ONE authority to satisfy to achieve 'priviledges' to 'movement' between countries and access to transportation.
It does mean there is ONE place of clearance of credentials where if there is an objection of any kind by any participating sovereign nation it is registered there and the LAYERS of sovereign authority STANDS as a measure to insure all participating nations are esteemed in their demands of security.
I am sure any pitfalls will work out. They have to. No power plays, simply an understanding of what 'potential of risk' is to 'the industries' involved and what 'secure credentials' actually mean.
This is NOT about efficiency or saving time and money. It IS about 'stopping' dangerous entities still alive in our world. That means it will be difficult to maneuver requiring a lot of patience and time. I don't see a 'special court' for such clearance either. Such issues need to 'take their place' among all others.
