Let his ass rot in Colorado! He should not be let out 1 second earlier than the 20 years given him. If it was the other way around & one of our guys was over there & got caught, he would probably been put to death.

His mother wants him to come home. She did not get the US Government involve when her son was over there fighting with the Taliban but now she wants him home. Give me a break. These are the mothers who live in denial. Only in America!!!!

HE was fighting against Americans, he's a turncoat. He needs to stay in prison and finish his term. What makes anyone think he won't re-join the talibahn?

Screw Lindh. Let him rot in prison or deport him to Afghanistan to find his hero, Bin Laden. He does not deserve to live in America!

3000+ people got a life sentence. John Walker Lindh only got 20 Years. His sentence has already been reduced. Let him rot in jail...

Twenty years was a very lenient sentence. If he serves any less, we will all know that our justice system can be bought - either money or politics.

Oh, we already knew that?

its for this mans best interest he stays there rather then being freed and having his head blown off with a shotgun from the first person who recognizes him. hicks isnt from the usa he's from austalia which doesnt make him a traitor to our country just another usa hating foreigner which is a big difference.

He's lucky he only got 20 years. He should have been EXECUTED!! So much for parenting skills! The parents brought up this piece of human garbage. Tis gene pool needs to be exterminated!

spoiled liberal brat agreed to a very generous sentence , he should not have a chance in hell of getting out earlier, they should have let the Northern Alliance deal with him! It is funny how this liberal clown who hated America so much uses his citzenship as soon as it became useful! shame on him and his clown parents!

Who is to say that he won't try to go back there once he's let out and plan to retaliate.
No. He needs to stay in prison and finish the 20 yr term. NO PITY HERE!!!!

That is the most rediculous thing i have ever heard. This guy fights against the alliance and these people think he should be freed. The Austrailian man isn't an American citizen. I still don't think they should let him go but that is for the Austrailian government to deal with. American people are starting to get too soft and they need to realize that it is a wartime situation. Someone who fights against your country during this time should pay the price. Especially persons who fight alongside the Taliban. This man could have been an extremist and blew up a bus full of children. I wonder what the parents of this man would think of that. People aren't thinking of that. Be a little bit smarter folks. That is all i ask.
Excellent commentary. Thank you.
