How will we handle terrorism from our own countrymen?


The trial of John Walker-Lindh has now passed and we are left, once again, devastated by news in direct relationship with this person... this person whose family declares his great love for America.  
What America does he love, we ask?   Is it the one he left when he joined up with the Taliban?  Is it the one he denied when given an opportunity, by Mike, to claim his nationality?  Or is it the one he now clings to in fear of long-term
punishment for his betrayal of her?

The "love" for America shown by Walker-Lindh includes belonging to a group that has killed thousands of people.  The Taliban has been involved in the attack on the U.S.S. Cole and the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.  Lindh, as part of this group, surrendered to American forces south of Mazar-e-Sharif, and was taken to a nearby prison.

The uprising began when Spann and another CIA agent were talking with Lindh who never mentioned that he was an American, and ended with Spann being the first American casualty of the war in Afghanistan.  

So, tell us again, Mr. Lindh... how much does your son love America?

   

 

"We are disappointed in the trials outcome.  As a mother, I would love for Mike to have 20 years.".

Gail Spann
Mike Spann's mother, regarding Walker-Lindh's 20-year sentence.

"For the Walker-Lindh's to say that their son "loves" America is an insult to our intelligence, and the American people's intelligence.  It is a slap in the face for Mike, his family, those who died on 9-11, their families, and every veteran that has ever fought in a war.".
