LA Times Wants Clemency for American Traitor
The LA Times pleads for a sentence reduction for American traitor, Jihad Johnny Walker Lindh. What they fail to mention is that Lindh should have been tried as a traitor, for which the sentence would have been death. All traitors claim that they really love their country, that they would never harm it. They always know better than the rest of the country and its policymakers.And a note to the Times: when Jihad Johnny took up arms for the Taliban, he full well knew that the US was allied with the Northern Alliance. Hence, his actions were treason. I'd say he got off easy with 20 years. As for the other "comparable" criminals the Times mentions, none of them is an American citizen, and thus not traitors.
