I find it disheartening to think that my country is keeping this misguided young man in a prison instead of holding him indefinitely at Gitmo and subjecting him to torture. He is not even worthy to mingle with American convicts. Also, his idiot parents should be horse-whipped.

As one who declares there is no God but the One God and Muhammad a messenger, does daily prayers, and stays that way despite the circumstances, he is exemplary young man, when others fornicate and drown in drunkenness.

There is no way one with sound mind should have taken his picture naked and blind folded like that, especially without his consent. You will be sorry if he ever to get out and revisit his pic, have you taken to court, and demand payback.

Please have the record straight - he never killed, and probably never shot a bullet. He was picked from the ruins of an American bombing spree.

He should have been the one rounding American soldiers and put them in Taliban jails.

Only the circumstances made him the prisoner when he could have been the jailor.

They should let him go so he could pray in a proper mosque in Terre Heute with other Muslims of the area. Try treat a Muslim with respect, will you?

And how do you know that?

Even if he didn't kill in jihad, it was only because he wasn't given the chance: he was captured with jihadis.

If people invade nations then the native will pick up arms against then, human-nature.
This American Taliban was only defending his people, nothing wrong in that, he didn't kill any innocent people, he did not torture or rape or create a abu-gharib prison.
There are many white Muslims converts who are educated, civilized and intelligent, but also practicing Muslims. 2/3 of converts to Islam are Women from the west, many of them are very smart, pretty and decent too, so there must be something about the religion they find interest.

Walker was in Afghanistan for his own business. His neighborhood or whereabouts was attacked because of an unrelated incident in New York city on 9/11.

They reckoned that the plane hijackers were Muslims and Walker was Muslim, therefore Walker was guilty.

No, anybody who follows the cult of the murderous paedophile false prophet mo is a sick diseased evil fool.
As for "payback", the west has slaughtered millions of you animals for your cowardly terrorism. Payback is fun, yes?

Here is my opinion as a retired soldier: eff this shitbird. He is a traitor. Doesn't mean a thing what religion he is, he is a modern day shitstain on the diaper of life. And as a believer in NO god, I can tell you that having read the bible and a translated Koran, extremists take the words in the Koran and twist it into what helps them further their cause, right or wrong knowing that Allah is actually a peaceful god, he just has some crazy ass followers. This guy was an extremist and a LOSER. He can go eff himself with a cactus.

Mawar AGAIN supports terrorists and doesn't get his facts straight either.

'Lindh was captured on November 25, 2001, by Afghan Northern Alliance forces after his Al-Qaeda foreign fighters unit surrendered at Kunduz after retreating from Takar'

'He was captured during the Battle of Qala-i-Jangi, a violent Taliban prison uprising during which Central Intelligence Agency officer Johnny "Mike" Spann was killed.'

To be convicted as a traitor in the US is very difficult, but if anyone should be it's Lindh. The founding fathers didn't want to have the abuses other countries did with handing out death sentences left and right for being a traitor. I almost wonder if they were made it too difficult.

He surely knew of the uprising by the other Taliban prisoners that led to directly to the death of an American agent, but he withheld that info from his interogators.

Apparently the gov't lawyers prosecuting Lindh found it easier to cut a deal, but that reflects badly on them, not the US Constitution.

You might be right on that.

As far as Americans being brought up on charges of Treason, so few have throughout the years, it's why I understand it's very difficult to charge someone with it.

Was Lindh even charged with Treason at all?

I liked it when he was being interviewed while chained to a bed. He had a fake-accent and said "I have great love for the Taliban". I wonder if the little twerp wishes he would have just kept pretending he was black instead of pretending he was an islamic militant...

"As an adolescent, Lindh participated in IRC chat rooms with the IRC nickname Mujahid. He became a devoted fan of hip-hop music, and engaged in extensive discussions on Usenet newsgroups, sometimes pretending to be an African-American rapper who would criticize others for "acting black".[9][10] The Spike Lee film Malcolm X impressed him deeply and sparked his interest in Islam.[1]

Although his parents did not officially divorce until 1999, their marriage was in serious trouble throughout Walker's adolescence. His father often left their Marin residence for extended periods to live in San Francisco with a male lover, as he had acknowledged he was homosexual.[11][12] Frank Lindh said he and Marilyn had been effectively separated since 1997.[13]"

His parents should be locked up with him for being such sh*t-heads.
