"American Taliban," Detainee #001 in the War on Terror, Released Today -- Early

As many have said, if Johnny Lindh had been prosecuted properly and gotten the Traitor's Bounty, we wouldn't be talking about this.
I question this kind of unseriousness when you're fighting a war in which you are ordering young men to die -- are you serious about this, or not?
Because if you're not really all that serious, then let's just do some cruise missile and B-2 strikes.
Why are we sending young men to die for something you don't have moral confidence about?
But Bush -- and Comey, who by the way was a communist when younger -- did not have moral confidence in his actions, apparently, and so Johnny Lindh was spared.
And now he'll be out on the streets.
By the way: He's continued to engage in Jihadist activities in prison, translating jihadist writings, for example.
John Walker Lindh was captured as an enemy combatant by American and British special forces after a four-day long firefight at a Qala-i-Jangi, a prison camp in Afghanistan that housed hundreds of Taliban prisoners. After a revolt from the Taliban prisoners, American CIA Agent Johnny Spann was killed -- he was the first American causality in Afghanistan during the War on Terror. Hundreds of Northern Alliance soldiers and Taliban prisoners were also killed during the Battle of Qala-i-Jangi.
Walker was brought back to the United States and sentenced to 20 years in prison for "supplying services to the Taliban" and for "carrying an explosive." He is not believed to have been directly involved in the murder of agent Snapp, and to this day he claims he never fired a weapon while serving under the Taliban.

He's out early on "good behavior."
That "good behavior" included Lindh sending handwritten letters to NBC in 2015 praising ISIS.
In one of four letters sent to the Los Angeles NBC station, KNBC, Lindh responded to a reporter’s question of whether ISIS represented Islam, according to NBC News. "Yes, and they are doing a spectacular job," Lindh wrote in the February 2015 handwritten response, NBC4 Los Angeles reported. "The Islamic State is clearly very sincere and serious about fulfilling the long-neglected religious obligation of establishing a caliphate through armed struggle, which is the only correct method."
These comments came after ISIS publicized videos showing the beheading of numerous American journalists in 2014, according to NBC News.

Ah yes, I remember that. Obama was so outraged by that he briefly interrupted a golf game to bloodlessly talk about it and then play through.

This jihadist asshole is settling in Virginia. I wonder if he'll be hanging around Dar al Hijrah (Falls Church Mosque).
