"We hope that President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush will find it in their hearts to grant mercy this holiday season," Lindh's mother, Marilyn Lindh, said today.

I'm truly sorry you raised an animal, Marilyn.  Now sit down and shut the hell up.

I was just wondering what happened to this dog yesterday.

He is lucky to still be living.

I’ve always wondered if his oh-so-liberal parents would have indulged him as much as if he’d, say, become a born-again Christian and joined the Marine Corps.

He will burn in hell, and you will be regretful forever, but it is not your fault like the others have said. Your son chose to be a devil of his own free will.

Can't we lock up his “parents” (i.e. sire & dam) for Incessant Whining, Unjustifiable Breathing, and Terminal Stupidity?

Take him out and shoot him, incinerate him and scatter his ashes far and wide from our land. He is not fit to breathe American air!

Well well....the Bush hating leftists are obsessed with the loin fruit suffering for their misguide parenting.

They should form a support group with the bulldozer fodder’s Rachel Corrie’s parents

I agree that his sentence in unfair.

If the sentence had been fair the sob would have been hung long ago.

At least we don't have to suffer the indignity that an Actual Buddhist does, having weirdos glom onto their faith.

It's not a problem. My faith in karma is absolute. LOL

I'd still like to see his sorry arse hung though. Why put off the inevitable? ; )

Lindh's two-decade sentence is unfair compared to people like David Hicks, the Australian who was sentenced to nine months for providing material support to Al-Qaida,...

Ummmm, probably because he took part in actions that killed Americans. That's like whining about how the triggerman gets more time than the guy who rented the getaway car.

But in the giving spirit of this holiday season, I suggest President Bush cut his sentence in half, and have him serve the rest in a military brig. Among the servicemen there. In general population. With inattentive guards.

During his incarceration, Lindh is undoubtedly being indoctrinated and brain-washed not only by imprisoned jihadists, but by MS-13 gang members. He is (in all probability) having a hard time trying to choose which to follow. (Or, he is trying to figure out how to be a member of both.

He only has 15 years left, and probably will be released much sooner. Heaven forbid when this little monster gets back on the streets.

I saw the sob story snippet on TV tonight, since I get one of the SF stations on my TV.

I think they are parents who are still in total denial of what their kid did. Both parents are total Liberals who never could say that the kid did anything wrong.
I say he stays where he is and when he is let out, he is watched very carefully.
This guy is just saying what he thinks the authorities want to hear.
He was wrong before, and he hasn’t changed, IMO.

Those freaks for parents, are going to have to wait until a Democrat is in the White House —— they need an ally to pull off that crime...

If I were at the scene of his capture — the little &^%&^%&^ would never have achieved prisoner status...

Poor little Taliban Johnny....

The fact that he was raised by fools, doesn’t alter the fact the little ^%^%*&%& gladly turned to a cult that preached the destruction of everything I hold dear....
He did in fact, undergo military training as an Islamist illegal combatant — and did in fact fight with units in opposition to Americans and our Afghani allies...

His refusal to TELL his interrogator of the planned rebellion by the prisoners who had been granted a cease fire — directly resulted in the death of a CIA agent — former U.S. Marine Captain Johnny Micheal “Mike” Spann.

This punk should send his prayers to Allah that he is still alive - and STFU..
He’s a nutter, bred by nutters and destined himself to remain a nutter — proved by his continued study and adherence to Isalm..

His fudge packing dad, left Taliban Johnny’s mother to go live with his BOYfriend....and there were stories of Little Taliban Johnny having a “romantic” relationship with the Pakistani who financed his “schooling” in Pakistan....

This (*&^%^&)^& should be dead..
His gene pool should be bleached...
He should never have been allowed to achieve prisoner status...

To give mercy would be an insult to every man and woman killed fighting these *&^(&*^(**&%*&)(**&%(*&(*(*&*(.

Actions have consequences..
Little Johnny decided to leave America and go to war...
War is hell.... Hell is eternal.

I'd like to know why Lindh was ever allowed to plea down to a lesser charge. It could not have been unknown to him that the Taliban provided sanctuary and support to terrorist organizations hostile to the United States.

I don't know if it was the U.S. Attorney's call, Ashcroft's, or the President's, but there was no reason to let this worm off so easily. He ought to have been made an example of.
