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
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?
"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.
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?
