A Sobering Thought That Shamed Us
April 23, 2007
Everybody remembers the name of Johnny Walker Lindh.
In a recent conversation with Dr Sanity, the question arose: Could we remember the name of the CIA agent that was killed at the time of Lindh’s capture? Sadly, we could not.
We had to look it up.
Dr Sanity and ourselves came to the realization that there is something very wrong- and very sad about that.
It turns out that this piece of garbage, John Walker Lindh (and make no mistake, that is exactly what he is), wants out of prison.
TigerHawk noted that
…reports that John Walker Lindh thinks he got a raw deal — twenty years of hard time — compared to similarly situated Westerners who put in their time at Gitmo and then received much lighter sentences from the military…
As for Lindh, let’s not go all gooey. The guy ran guns for the Taliban. Even if he did not participate in action against the United States, he was a combatant for a regime that overtly gave sanctuary to al Qaeda, which had declared war on the United States in 1998. No religious belief can justify that. Who are we kidding? The guy may have been “confused,” but he was “confused” in a really bad way.
The CIA agent who was killed by Lindh’s comrades left a wife and son.
It is said that ‘the apple doesn’t fall from the tree,’ and that is true.
Johnny Walker Lindh’s father has done nothing but lie in his efforts to portray his son as a ‘victim’ and ‘misunderstood.’
The piece of garbage that is Johnny Walker Lindh, knew of 9/11 plot and did nothing.
He knew of the uprising and revolt that was take the life of an American who chose to defend his nation- and even more importantly, a husband and father- and said nothing.
We are ashamed that we knew the name of Johnny Walker Lindh, but could not recall the name of the hero that gave his life for our freedom.
