I clearly stated, "In one sense, the Declaration of Independence made us a nation of outlaws."
That's not open to debate or discussion. The signers of that document knew that in one sense they were outlaws, and would be hung for treason if caught. Similarly, any of the colonists who supported, endorsed or agreed with the sentiments of the Declaration would have been viewed by their fellow British subjects as "outlaws" as long as they remained British subjects.

I agree with you framing it that way.

(I can neither confirm or deny that; even if I could, I couldn't - it's classified.)
