I am providing a link to this article by the father of John Walker Lindh. I have read the story about John several times and I have often thought that this could be the child of so many of us....a young man pulled to Islam and its teachings who then finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. My country has grown so intolerant and the need for "bad guys" never greater....and so we tortured this young man and made him our homemade scapegoat for the crimes of people we either could not catch or couldn't be bothered catching.
