Poor Johnny Walker Lind Wants To Be Free

And 5 minutes later, he would be on a plane to some jihad location, I’m sure

The lawyer and parents of American-born Taliban soldier John Walker Lindh renewed their call to President Bush on Tuesday to commute his 20-year sentence and set him free.

Lindh, 27, was captured in Afghanistan in November 2001 by U.S. forces sent to topple the Taliban after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He was charged with conspiring to kill Americans and supporting terrorists but pleaded guilty in 2002 to lesser offenses of supplying services to the now-defunct Taliban government.

Lindh had converted to Islam and went to Afghanistan to fight for the Taliban against the Northern Alliance in 2001.

“His only offense was serving in the army of Afghanistan,” his mother Marilyn Walker said at a news conference Tuesday. “He’s admitted this was a mistake on his part.”

Is there really any point in breaking the issue down? Conservatives understand it, and liberals sympathize with Mr. American Taliban, so, what would be the point?

Lindh attorney James Brosnahan said he filed a formal commutation petition with President Bush and new Attorney General Michael Mukasey. It’s the fourth such attempt by Brosnahan, who brokered the plea deal and 20-year sentence.

So, they accepted the plea deal and the sentence, and now they want a get out of jail free card? How soon till we get liberals demonstrating and signing petitions? I know he doesn’t have the pedigree of Mumia and Tookie, since, as far as we know, he hasn’t killed a cop or went on a killing spree, but, he was in the area when a CIA officer was killed. That has to count for something in Liberal World.

    The ultra right is always seeking to proclaim all non Bushies as terrorist lovers. But The american people still prefer to vot for the Democrats putting the Republicans in a very minority position. Do you think that the Republicans will regain power in Congress in 2008 ? or keep control of the White House ??
