Let John Lindh go free

The New York Times published an op/ed column from Mr. Frank Lindh, father of John Lindh, the so-called American Taliban, pleading for his son's release from the prison. Mr. Frank Lindh wrote, "John was a scapegoat, wrongly accused of terrorism at a moment when our grieving country needed someone to blame because the real terrorist had gotten away. Now that Bin Laden is dead, I hope President Obama, and the American people, can find it in their hearts to release John, and let him come home. Ten years is enough."

I endorse the plea and would like our president to release John. He is no traitor to the USA. He was never threat to America and in all likelihood will never be a threat to his country. He has remained behind the prison walls for the last ten years. It is time to say enough is enough, and let John live a free life.
