Went off and killed him. No, there was no not enough left. Well-paid. That's sad. Yeah. Well, I mean, we found out today that John Walker Lindh a normal American teenager.

Now, time for everyone to switch sides again on Julian Assange was wondering what in the pool with so on now? Whatever you're on now is probably to go the other side, because it started off liberals loved Julian, Assange and conservatives hated Julian Assange, and then twenty sixteen when the Hillary stuff was going on conservative started loving Julian Assange and liberals hated Julian Assange. Well, now the Trump administration has charged Assange and now they hate Julian Assange, but now the liberals are saying, wait a minute. You're attacking our journalist protections. We love Julian Assange, whatever side you on. Make sure make a note for later on today. You're supposed to flip flop exact opposite side. All right.

"That's how you do it right here on. I like that. Breaking news that was. That was good. Breaking news busy show today. Let's you know. Again. We, we have Nancy Pelosi continuing to push Trump's buttons. You know, you know, if I want to use a, a Hanna Barbera cartoon sound effect on you know what Pelosi's doing Trump. It's, you know. Poke poke. Poke poke poke lots of poking. Yeah. Just. Folks Nancy Pelosi the speaker of the house, whether you like it or not knows how to push. Trump's buttons, and we'll get into that in just a bit onto the Taliban. Story. And John Walker Lindh if you saw the earlier this week, if you listen to the radio show earlier this week, I vented, I just infuriated. This story and we have some, you know, future details. And I told you earlier in the week that just within the last couple of years that John Walker Lindh still espoused a radical Islamic Jihadist ideology and beliefs. And he's out. He was released early this morning. From federal detention. Oh, we're supposed to feel good. Because he's on probation. The you realize that John Walker Lynn really should have been in prison for life, multiple life sentences and then tag on some extra attack on some extra as well. Let's go over a little bit of the story of John Walker Lindh here is I even ask can the president yesterday show talked about this, I think Monday, then I brought up yesterday. Is there any way that the president of consum- how intervene here on why he's being released by three years early already cut a deal? Let's historically go back and look at a little bit of John Walker Lindh you know, he was called the American Taliban. And if you know the history here, he pleaded guilty to fighting four. The former militant leaders of Afghanistan. You know, essentially right after nine eleven right after the nine eleven terrorist attacks here in the United States. And it's a done deal he was sprung from federal president, Terre Haute, Indiana earlier this morning. A spokesperson for the Federal Bureau of prisons confirmed that John Walker, Taliban, Lovin Lind is no longer in federal custody. The terrorists has left the building. Member Lind, was it was the first of US born detainees. In President, George W Bush's war on terror. Yeah, he was. It was number one I even had the tag. He was detainees zero zero one. If among steak and I, I mentioned that earlier in the week. So he serves seventeen years of this twenty years sentence, which you get twenty years was way too light. And if you don't know the back story, why guy eligible for multiple life sentences. Why did he only get a twenty years stay in federal prison? Why was that the sentence? I mean he supplied services to the Taliban. He carried an explosive device during the commission of a felony. The whole story is. That he got a light sentence. He got the twenty years, because that was a plea deal. That why was there a plea deal with they had them in a sensually nailed to the walls? Why did the feds make a plea deal with John Walker? Lindh the American Taliban. Well, I'll tell you initially John Walker Lindh pleaded not guilty to ten counts, including conspiracy to murder US, citizens, or US nationals. And again, he should have had three life sentences could face that plus for, for bonus just for the hell of it an additional ninety years in prison, if he hadn't cut a deal with the department of Justice. And they grieve they agreed to reduce the charges because and here's the little kicker here, they will worry that, if the case went to court and a lot of the evidence might be chucked lot of the evidence might be tossed, because they will worried. John Walker Lynn had not been maranda is, you know, you have the right to remain silent anything you say, maybe used against you at a quart of law. You're right to an attorney if you can't afford attorney while the appointed for you. The, the whole thing. So they were concerned that he could've walked. John Walker walking blend. I got the sweetheart deal. He got this sweet deal, which he's out after the seventy hard to believe that amazing. You know this summer. Or well still technically summers, the eleventh, we, we, we don't hit fall until later. But can you believe that it's the timber it's going to be eighteen years since nine eleven? My daughter is going to be eighteen in August. And I've told the story, many times that my daughter was born about three weeks prior to nine eleven. And when nine eleven happened, I remember the conversation as if it were a minute ago with my wife, looking at the video footage, the replays of the planes, hitting the towers the explosions. The, the flames shooting out the black smoke. The collapse of the towers. The people covered with dust, and soot like walking zombies, you know, leaving lower Manhattan. I, I remember having a conversation with my wife and I said to Michelle, I said while looking at our beautiful little girl, little khloe. I remember saying what the hell have we done? What, what kind of world have we brought khloe into Luzon? I'm thrilled that we have, I can't believe she's going to be eighteen this summer. Of course, nine eleven eighteen years as well. In september. So we got this sweetheart deal. Because of Miranda issues and, oh, and also because tourneys were bitching, and moaning that he had been tortured. That's why got this good deal. So now on top of the sweetheart deal that only give twenty years instead of multiple life sentences. He's out for good behavior. I'm just curious. How is it good behavior when he he's still a spouse, his radical Jihadist beliefs in exchanges in correspondence with K NBC television in Los Angeles. How does that happen? I bet you a lot of you folks, listening to the radio show or watch the Newsmax. You're probably unaware of some of the correspondents that John Walker Lindh American Taliban had with the news department of K NBC in Los Angeles channel four the NBC on operated in LA. Tayo want to dive into that because that's a central that's important. And we'll get into that next. On Schmidt sponsor this half hour, the great folks at blink home security.

"I mean, let's be clear about this. John Walker Lindh made a lot of statements that were very, very conclusive about advocating violence advocating jihad hoping that there is a caliphate established, according to the prophecies, and he is in support of that. But again, that's not being terror. And I was actually just trying to find on my phone right now while while waiting examples of other people who have actually been convicted of terrorist attacks in the war on terrorism, who got a lot lighter sentences than heated and I can't find one right now but, you know, seventeen years is a very long time. And there are other people I was looking at Bowie bergdahl the, the, the US soldier who went when a wall, and others who, who have done things that were much more serious. You know, there's talk now about Trump pardoning some of these special operations guys who were taking sniper shots at innocent civilians. So it's a very, very complicated situation. It's, it's apples to oranges, but, but it is important to note as, as, as Dale said that, that he was a teenager. He was being shuffled from Yemen to Pakistan to, to Afghanistan, and you don't really know what kind of indoctrination there was these camps are very good at that. I've written a lot about them. You know the training camps. He also. Was, you know, probably a prisoner of some sort in, in that he felt that, that he had to espouse those kind of us as well. So what I would love to see also as Johnny Mike Spann had interviewed him or interrogated him before he was killed in. I you know, I'd love to hear what he what he got from that interview what would Lynn said et cetera. Well, then it Clifford we've got about a minute and a half left. And I just want to point out that the terms of Linz probation are pretty strict, right. He's won't be allowed to go online or owning a web capable device without permission from his probation officer of barred from travelling internationally or getting a passport other provisions require mental health counseling, and prohibitions from communicating with any known extremists or watching reading materials at re reflect extremists views. Those are the terms of his his release. But it doesn't also seem as if we have sort of a comprehensive plan on what to do or how to. Reintegrate people like Lind, do, we know, I wouldn't say we do, especially at the probation level in the things that are applied in Linz case, which, as you noted are very severe in terms of how these cases, go won't be applicable to the per estimates. About one hundred people convicted of terrorism related offenses who will be released before twenty twenty three it's important to keep in mind that not everybody will be John Walker Lindh and those types of very severe restrictions could potentially push them further into radicalization, especially if they're at a lower level of that stage. Wow. Well at Clifford research, fellow at the program on extremism, at the George Washington University.

"An accusation down our men and women fight hard to protect people in our custody every single day. Now that was a great response. Yes, she really is saying, not just in an interview, not offhand, not in a situation in which he was caught on hidden camera in a house committee hearing. She says, I believe that the department of homeland security, I believe that this is an intentional killing of migrant children that the government to the United States that the people in the border patrol those charged with keeping these children safe while they. Are either returned to their country of origin or their granted asylum, that they're intentionally killing them? Think about that for a second. This is what this woman honestly believes. And of course, the media coverage of this. Are you ready for the headline in splinter? Republicans meltdown after House Democrat calls child migrant deaths intentional her remarks were stricken from the record splinter dot com. Is a liberal online news source, it, primarily deals with technology, and movie news and stuff like that, but they will occasionally venture venture into politics. Yes, the real the real scandal here was Republicans melting down over woman, said that's at border patrol agents are intentionally killing migrant children. Congratulations Lauren Underwood you are our inaugural unhinged liberal of the day. John Walker Lindh. Anyone remember that name producer, Dave? You do not remember the name. John Walker Lindh. Come on. Come on two thousand one fall of two thousand one. Remember it. The initial invasion of Afghanistan. One of the very first wave of forces to arrive to combat the Taliban the Northern Alliance that sort of stuff they found amongst group of Taliban fighters that they had captured an American citizen. His name was John Walker Lindy quickly became known as the American Taliban, and it was shocking to the American people is shocking across the world that after nine eleven there would be somebody who had fought alongside the Taliban, he was, of course, immediately taken into custody, and because he was an American citizen. He was afforded due process rights in an American court. He was sentenced to twenty years for providing material support to a terrorist network. He was released from prison this morning. After seventeen years, he had served in federal prison in Tara, Indiana. He's a free man. He was given three years off for good behavior. The Trump administration said look this statute is clear. He was sentenced to twenty years. He serves twenty years less time for good behavior. He was in the eyes of the prison officials where he served. He was an ideal prisoner. This is sparked outrage because for those who don't remember the story of John Walker Lindh. He was captured in, I think it was December of two thousand one and the video footage that aired on CNN after he was captured. He was lying on a cot. And there was a. There was an American soldier as a officer by the name of Mike Spann, who was talking to him. Where are you from what are you doing here? You're, you're American. What's going on? What's happening? About an hour later at this detention camp in northern Afghanistan. There was an uprising of the prisoners of the POW's, the detainees, whatever you want to call them, they eventually or they had smuggled weapons. They had grenades. They had there was an uprising. There was a firefight in this detention facility and Mike Spann was killed. Now, Lind was there and that video of Mike Spann that was the last video of him alive. It was literally, an hour or two later, he was killed in this firefight. Lynn was obviously there, but he didn't take part in this attack. It was another group of prisoners or detainees that still had their weapons, somehow in the fog of war has made it sort of unclear how exactly they weren't totally disarmed did they somehow managed to I, I read one story that they had used string to tie grenades to their you-know-what and kind of dangle them down the legs so that when they were padded down the officers would have missed that and I think they were doing that with handguns as well. But span was killed now the span family is understandably livid that Lind is a free man now because the family still blames him for Mike. Steph Lynn could have said, hey, there are a group of dudes downstairs waiting to ambush but he didn't. He was silent. He didn't say anything. Remember he was never charged as party to the crime of murder. And he was because of his status as an American citizen. Avoid avoid afforded the due process rights that you are. I would be as well. Now, there was a movement to. There was a movement to keep them in prison, much longer. In fact, at the time I went back and read news coverage which is remarkably difficult because there was not a lot of news that was online in December of two thousand and one I kind of had to go back to microfiche to take a look at some contemporaneous news accounts, and there were people who wanted him charged with the homicide of Mike Spann, but he never was he was only charged with providing material support to an enemy. He was not charged with treason, which would have theoretically, given him the death sentence. In other words, prosecutors gave John Walker. Linda bit of a break. This is exactly what we talk about in conservative radio. And on this show in particular when it comes to crime in Milwaukee and Madison and other big cities, that aren't charged the way they should be, when you reduce the charge, you also reduce the strength of the conviction. You reduce the length of prison time. John Walker Lindh. Was the beneficiary of even at the height? Of America's pain hurt and suffering over nine eleven. He was the beneficiary of prosecutorial leniency. And now we're seeing the worldwide outrage that this guy who took up arms against the United States who declared his allegiance to an enemy of the United States. Do you know what reason he gave for joining the Taliban, he converted to Islam after seeing the movie, Malcolm X and at the time of the nine eleven attacks he was actually in the Talbot he didn't go post nine eleven he was already in Afghanistan? He was a Catholic converted to Islam as a teenager after seeing Malcolm X went overseas to study Arabic. And the Koran is from USA today, and November of two thousand he traveled to Pakistan from there made his way to Afghantistan where he was volunteer at an al-qaeda training camp. And in fact, he later admitted that he had met, Osama bin Laden and one would think from bin Laden's perspective. This was sort of a guy that you want pay in American. We could use this guy, my goodness. Let's get back to the United States with some plastic explosives strapped to him. But the point is that as an American citizen, even someone as heinous as awful as despicable, a human being as John Walker Lindh, he still does enjoy due process rights, and now that his prison sentences over, there are significant restrictions on him. He had to give up his passport. He's pretty much going to be monitored. I think for the rest of his life. He's not allowed to post anything on the internet outside of the English language, so he can't post in Iraq, even though he clearly knows it his online activity is going to be very carefully monitored. But he is going to be a free man. Now, people are upset by this people believe that he should be held indefinitely that he should be in prison for the rest of his life. Folks, I'm sorry. This probably isn't going to be a very popular opinion. He was charged. He was convicted he was given a sentence. He served that sentence. He is now a free man. This is exactly how the American Justice system works. But I'll remind you if you're upset by this, no, Dave, that's, that's the other thing, he has not shown a Cording to reports from in the prison and according to forget what, what federal agency issued this, the department of prison. Whatever it was. Whichever agency was overseeing this. He apparently is not he's been preaching Islam to fellow inmates. And he is still just as radical as ever and I believe I saw something he's more radical now than he was when he was fighting with the Taliban if such a thing as possible, but he's a free man. So if you're upset by this, if your livid that someone like this could be free after. Even seventeen years. And for those of us who lived through nine eleven it does not seem, I still have to kind of slap myself and say, my goodness, it's been seventeen years since nine eleven since that was the defining moment in my life. I was nineteen twenty years old when nine eleven happened, and that was the thing that got me into politics. That's the event the seminal event in my life that shaped my career shaved my interest shape, my passion for politics for news for current events for global affairs. That sort of thing he did serve seventeen years. That is a long time in prison. If you're upset that it doesn't seem like that long of a period of time you should be upset by what he was actually charged with. And you should extrapolate that anger in that disgust. To prosecutorial discretion as it pertains divide crime in Milwaukee, as it pertains, violent crime anywhere when someone gets a break, there, ought to prison a lot earlier than you might think. And in fact, in Milwaukee, unless they commit an incredibly heinous crime. They're never even going to prison in the first place. The story of John Walker Lindh, ultimately is a story about how leniency in the criminal Justice system can have disastrous effects when we're letting people out of prisoner. Never sending them there in the first place, even though they really obviously be deserve to be in prison for life. Keep in touch with Dan on Twitter at dano Donald show. More of the show is next..
