I can not believe this man is asking Bush for a pardon

The "Taliban American" John Lindh wants president Bush to commute his sentence. For those of you who do not remember him....he was the American citizen caught fighting in Afghanistan with the terrorist. What do you think...should he have to serve his 20 years or should Bush let him out?

This guy is a class A pr*ck! Born a Catholic I'm pretty certain his only aim was to be some sort of martyr and celebrated hero. I'm surprised how lenient they were on him, he'll be elegible for parole in 17 years.

I know. I would have thought he would gotten more time than that. But at least we do not have to worry about for 17 more years. Hopefully by then his parents have talked some sense in to him. If not....well I am sure the FBI will be keeping tabs on him for the rest of his life.

I don't think this guy has a chance in hell of getting a pardon. But, I believe his parents do have money, so stranger things have happened.

no amount of money is going to get this guy a pardon. He is going to sit in jail for a long long time.

Even our ex-governor republican George Ryan who has served one year of his sentence has a hot shot lawyer, fellow republican and ex-governor Jim Thompson trying to get the crook Ryan pardoned. I guess the "lame duck" has the ability to do so. As far as I'm concerned they both need to serve out their sentence in prison, but I'll be Ryan's quarters are a bit nicer than John Linh's. Where will it all end?

I do not think Bush will pardon him. But I can believe he actually had the you know what whats to even ask for it. I mean come on. Who in their right mind thinks Bush would give a pardon to a terrorist, even if he is a US citizen.

Okay let me understand this, John Lindh served in the Taliban, fought against the American way of life, but now wants that same American system that he hates free him? There are a couple of people I would like President Bush to pardon but Lindh is no where close to the top of my list.

He is not even on my list. But the two border guards who are in jail right now for protecting THIS country are at the top of mine.

Although I have little if any respect for him left as it is, I would be greatly disappointed yet again by Bush's actions. I mean we really just need to get rid of this guy already- has he not done enough damage??? I believe this man should serve every bit of this 20 years sentence plus another 20 just for the heck of it! I cannot believe that Bush would even consider doing this.......Grrrrr

I doubt Bush is considering it. They just put in the paperwork along with everyone else. He probly looked at it and right away said nope not going to do that one. So the parents are going to the press to try and preasure him to do it. It will not work.
