Why Lindh is in jail

Frank Lindh, father of John Walker Lindh, does an excellent job of telling his son's story. John Walker Lindh is now serving twenty years for being:

  1. the poster boy for Bush's war on terror; and

  2. an American eye-witness who could tell of how the United States allowed its ally, Northern Alliance warlord Abdul Rashid Dostum, to commit war crimes, and in fact participated, through American Special Forces, in the illegal slaughter of a group of Afghan prisoners.

The way that Lindh was tortured and railroaded is just another piece of evidence of wrongdoing by the Bush Administration. They can't let him out of jail as they can't let him tell what he knows.
