Johnny Jihad wants a pardon.
The Orlando Sentinel ^ | November 29, 2008 | LARA JAKES JORDAN

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Some high-profile convicts past and present are among more than 2,000 people asking President George W. Bush to pardon them or commute their prison sentences before he leaves office. Junk-bond king Michael Milken, media mogul Conrad Black and American-born Taliban soldier John Walker Lindh have applied to the Justice Department seeking official forgiveness.

Do you remember this lunatic? He was captured fighting with the Taliban in Afghanistan. This moron is lucky we did not execute him for treason. My guess is "pigs will fly" before President Bush pardons him. Perhaps Barack Hussein Obama will before he leaves office.

He should have danced at the end of a rope for his acts. But since he is Muslim, he is protected. Makes a person shake his head in confusion.

Best thing John Walker Lindh can do for his own personal security right now is change his name and move to Tibet !

....or run for President in America.

Perhaps he will do it as the first order of business, after pardoning all his brethren in Gitmo.

Typical SF Bay area Lib brat on a spiritual journey trying to find himself - and winds up working for Osama bin Laden. He should be flown back to Afghanistan and deposited from 30,000 feet.

I think he should be pardoned and returned to the Afghans. I’m sure they could find something to charge him with if they try hard enough.

I think he should be pardoned too. Bring him to me and I will say, “Oops, pardon me! Darn, I didn’t mean to shoot you in the neck. I was aiming for your face.”

Then you can return him to the Afghans.

I don’t believe he’s ever spoken of making a “mistake”. This is what bothers me and why I could not issue out a pardon to the guy. If he were merely brainwashed...and he came to realize the problems of Islam...then it might be to our advantage to let him out to explain this issue to the public. Strangely enough....he never says a negative word about Islam.

“It wouldnt surprise me if he got one while Ramos and Compean end up rotting in jail.”

My exact thought.

If that Bastard gets out of prison you can bet he will be the next darling of the left, speaking at every rally and commercial george soros can produce. Someone needs to take the mop handle to him.

When I make my next call to the WH to ask that the President pardon Ramos and Compean, I will also, adamantly, urge that this low life, Lindh, spend the rest of his life in prison....and I mean prison, not some country club facility.

Once Hussein pardons him, He’ll receive a $1 million advance on a book. Someone will write a book for him, a petro prince will buy millions of copies, a movie will be made, some university will give him a scholarship and before you know it, he’ll be a full tenured professor sitting on an endowed chair.

I've always thought it was different than that. His father left his mother to live with a man. What he did was join the most vehemently anti-homosexual religion going.

I remember the nutty Cali Taliban dude. Ugh. God forbid he get that pardon, what’s next for him? Guest lecturing at Berkeley? A position in the new administration? Or just more terror plotting and recruiting of others like him among disaffected Cali young people?

John Walker Lindh?
Release him in the middle of Fort Benning and give the Rangers a heads up.

I remember him alright. And the death of the CIA agent he was responsible for. ‘’Matels new Johnny Jihad! Johnny Jihad comes complete with his own AK-47 and copy of the Holy Koran. Press the button and he talks: “Dath to America’’. Johnny Jihad and Johnny Jihad acessories sold seperatly. Batteries not included’’.

Even if he changed his mind about Islam, I can understand why he might not say anything while in prison. Prison would be a poor place to be a recovering Muslim.

With that said, even if he were speaking against Islam, I say keep him right where he is until he finishes his sentence unless Afghanistan wants to try him. We have no way of knowing if he has truly changed or is just trying to get out.

If the American Taliban is pardoned, I can’t imagine he would live much longer.
