American Taliban traitor who fought and killed US soldiers to be released in May, expresses support for Islamic State (ISIS)

We’ve really come full circle. One terrible, awful circle. Abdul Hamid aka Abu Sulayman (nee John Walker Lindh) was one of the earliest stories I covered when I began this news site back in 2004. Sulayman nee Lindh was a U.S. citizen who had converted to Islam and joined the Taliban. He was captured as an enemy combatant during the United States’ invasion of Afghanistan in November 2001. He was captured and detained at Qala-i-Jangi fortress. He took part against the US in the Battle of Qala-i-Jangi, a violent uprising of Taliban prisoners, during which the CIA officer Johnny “Mike” Spann was killed. Just hours before his death, CIA agent and America hero Mike Spann interviewed this traitor. Not long after, Spann was killed when Muslim prisoners emerging from the fortress rushed the guards, throwing grenades and grabbing their captors’ rifles.

The first American killed in … Afghanistan… on November 25, 2001.

Spann was a CIA operative, one of a small number of Americans who landed in Afghanistan, helped coordinate local forces hostile to the Taliban, and directed bombing and other military action.

The story of this small band of men has been told, but not told enough.

Spann was killed during the Battle of Qala-i-Jangi when Taliban prisoners gained access to weapons and attacked.

Spann was killed during that uprising (see video).  One of the prisoners was the so-called American Taliban, John Walker Lindh, who Spann interrogated shortly before Spann’s death. Legal Insurrection)

Back in 2001, Lindh was reviled by the American people. He was public enemy number one. American knew what was what. 18 years later and American is under siege subsumed by the enemy who dictates who we are, what we can and cannot say and who is the enemy.

War hero Spann is dead, but Abdul nee Lindh walks free. He should have been put to death by firing squad in Afghanistan.

Like terror mastermind Sheik Omar Rahman, John Walker Lindh, used the “I Am a Muslim” defense, which had been attempted in a variety of federal and state court contexts for over 20 years. he argues that a more subtle version is in play whenever a Muslim party insists on the right not to cooperate with authorities, and when he/she objects to the religious make-up of juries or religious affiliation of judges.

Muslim litigants who attempted to explain their conduct by their religious beliefs and mandates. I consider these findings an extension of the “Overlooked History” series I have been posting over the last few months on the Counterterrorism Blog. The “I Am a Muslim” defense was most prominently on display in the cases of Sheik Omar Rahman and John Walker Lindh, but has been attempted in a variety of federal and state court contexts for over 20 years.

In 2017, John Lindh, the American soldier who  fought with the Taliban in Afghanistan — essentially fighting against his own U.S. military members, an outright act of treason — has expressed, from his prison cell, “cautious support” for ISIS.

John Walker Lindh, American ex-Taliban fighter, to be released in May, hasn’t denounced Islamism

FOX News, March 19, 2019:

John Walker Lindh, American ex-Taliban fighter, to be released in May, hasn’t denounced Islamism
By Lukas Mikelionis | Fox News

John Walker Lindh, a former American Taliban militant, is due to be freed in May following his conviction in 2002 for the support of the Taliban.

The former Islamist fighter, dubbed “Detainee 001 in the war on terror,” was arrested in 2001, just months after the Sept. 11 attacks and the start of the war in Afghanistan. Then just 20 years old, he was among a group of Taliban fighters who were captured by U.S. forces.

Within a year, Walker Lindh was convicted of supporting the Taliban and sentenced to 20 years in prison — even as some hardliners urged authorities to consider treason charges that could have resulted in the death penalty.

Walker Lindh’s release later this year is likely to be met with headaches for security services across the globe, especially since he has since acquired Irish citizenship and plans to move there — even though he hasn’t denounced radical Islamic ideology and has even made pro-Isis comments to the media.

The National Counterterrorism Center penned a document dated Jan. 24, 2017 claiming the former Taliban fighter remains as radicalized now as he was in 2001.

“As of May 2016, John Walker Lindh (USPER) — who is scheduled to be released in May 2019 after being convicted of supporting the Taliban — continued to advocate for global jihad and to write and translate violent extremist texts,” the Foreign Policy magazine reported.

The report added Walker Lindh told “a television news producer that he would continue to spread violent extremist Islam upon his release.”

It appears, however, that the Irish government won’t follow the example of the British government — which rescinded a Jihadi bride’s British citizenship — and won’t stop Walker Lindh from entering the country.

“Irish citizens are not subject to immigration control,” the spokesman for Ireland’s Department of Justice told the London Times. “Therefore, if a person has Irish citizenship and presents their Irish passport on arrival, they will not be refused entry to the state.”

Walker Lindh confirmed his plans to head to Ireland after his release in remarks he made to CAGE, a London-based organization focused on supporting people impacted by the War on Terror.

“I don’t really know what to expect from the Irish government. I know virtually nothing about them. I think the only reasonable way to present my case to them is to explain my unique circumstances that make my survival in the US practically impossible.
— John Walker Lindh

“I don’t really know what to expect from the Irish government,” he wrote to the group, according to the newspaper. “I know virtually nothing about them. I think the only reasonable way to present my case to them is to explain my unique circumstances that make my survival in the US practically impossible.”

He added: “Essentially I am seeking asylum from one country where I am a citizen in another country where I am also a citizen. The worst they can do is decline my request. I figure it is worth at least trying.”

In the U.S., meanwhile, multiple lawmakers have called for the creation of a registry of convicted terrorists, modeled after sex-offender registries, as multiple high-profile releases are set to take place in the next two years.
