EXCLUSIVE: John Walker Lindh’s Parents Discuss Their Son’s Story
The above link provides an interview of the Parents of John Walker Lindh a member of the American formed, funded and supported Taliban and the story of how he was betrayed by his own Nation after the USA used him and young men like him to fulfill their interests as they nurtured and bred terrorists to fight against the Soviets and drive them out of Afghanistan.
His mistake was unlike most of the Taliban fighters he refused to be used by the US government and fulfill the USA’s Agenda by massacring innocent civilians in Pakistan and Afghanistan like other Taliban soldiers but came to Afghanistan to stop what he saw as atrocities of the Northern Alliance on the Afghan people.
He was trapped by the USA’s allies, the Taliban in a war that had nothing to do with him. He then suffered the brutality of the Northern Alliance under Commander Dostum who had only recently allied with the government of George Bush who was keen to show the World that his country was a sworn enemy of the Taliban who they had themselves created.
Since John Walker Lindh did not act according to US needs by adopting violent Taliban behavior by pillaging property and massacring innocents in Afghanistan he was brutally punished by his home country. On the other hand Taliban commanders who were responsible for the mass murder of Afghans or Pakistanis such as Haqqani Abdullah Mehsud very conveniently evaded capture.
John was handed over to the Americans by Commander Dostum where he was tortured and brutalized under the orders of American Officials and paraded as the “American Taliban” and as a violent terrorist by the media. His crime was that as a Taliban soldier he had failed to accomplish his purpose and had refused to drain the blood of innocent civilians in Afghanistan to give USA the excuse of being the “protectors of Afghans from Taliban’s terrorism”.
He continues to suffer for serving his country by joining the Taliban who until 9/11 were always the brave heroes for driving the Soviets away from Afghanistan.
