WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The man dubbed the "Taliban American" is asking the president to commute the remaining years of his federal prison sentence, according to a statement released by his attorneys Wednesday.

John Walker Lindh is hoping that President Bush will commute the rest of his 20-year sentence.

John Walker Lindh, a 27-year-old Californian, has served seven years of a 20-year sentence after being captured in Afghanistan in 2001.

He joined the Taliban to fight in the country's civil war one month before the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan, according to the statement.

He originally was indicted on 10 charges, including conspiring to kill American citizens, but the U.S. Justice Department dismissed terrorism-related charges in 2002.

Lindh pleaded guilty to serving in the Taliban army and carrying weapons while fighting the U.S.-backed Northern Alliance. Along with the plea, he signed a gag order that prevented him from doing interviews.

His lawyers say Lindh never fought against American forces and received a harsher sentence because sentencing occurred after the September 11, 2001, attacks in New York, Washington and rural Pennsylvania.

Lindh's attorneys say he arrived in Afghanistan on September 6, 2001.

At a news conference Wednesday in San Francisco, California, Lindh's parents called on President Bush to show mercy for their son.

"This is the Christmas season, and it's a time for mercy," said Lindh's mother, Marilyn Walker.

His father, Frank Lindh, said his son, who grew up in California and converted to Islam as a teenager, "is a Muslim. He will always, I think, be a Muslim."

His parents repeated their contention that Lindh went abroad to study Islam, found himself in Afghanistan in a civil war and joined the Taliban with no intent to support terrorism or fight against his homeland. They believe that the post-September 11 charges of terrorism, which were subsequently dismissed, spurred public reaction against Lindh that resulted in the 20-year sentence.

"Our son never fought against American forces," his mother said. "He did not participate in terrorist activities of any kind. ... John made a mistake in joining the Afghan army at a time when their government was controlled by the Taliban. He has admitted that this was a mistake."

Lindh's attorneys said he is at a medium-security prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.

The elder Lindh said his son has been treated "very humanely" in the federal prison system.

"Quietly and in a good way, he has served his seven years," Frank Lindh said. "No matter what your perspective on this case, we think everyone should agree that seven years is enough."

Lindh's attorneys said that previous commutation appeals to the Bush administration have gone unanswered, but his father said Lindh's family holds out hope that Bush will act before leaving office.

"All of these events occurred while President Bush was in office," Frank Lindh said. "This is on his plate. I'd like to think we'll get a response from President Bush this time."

Appearing before a U.S. district judge in 2002, Lindh said he "made a mistake by joining the Taliban" and "had I realized then what I know now about the Taliban, I would never have joined them."

"Life is making choices and living with the consequences," U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis told Lindh during the sentencing. "You made a bad choice to join the Taliban."

I like the fact that his lawyers said "he never fought against any American's." Coincidence since he was taken prisoner after the prison uprising and the death of a CIA agent. So, how are we to know that he is not the one that killed them.

Also, his parents are saying that this is Christmas and it is a time for mercy. KMA, what about the families of Agent Mike Spann, I know his family would love to have him home and alive for the holidays. Because of Lindh and douchebags like him, many American families are without their loved ones on Christmas.

They should have left him to die in that hole they found him in!

As far as I'm concerned, he was shown mercy and lots of it. He wasn't lined up against a concrete wall while his body was riddled with high-caliber rounds, which is what would have happened if the disposition of his case were left up to me.

The Taliban doesn't believe in Christmas anyway, so my answer is the same as any other time of year--let him rot.

If they are guilty, then they are guilty!!! Why should Christmas have anything to do with it? Give me a friggin break. All of the Psuedo-Do-Gooders come out of the woodwork at this time of the year & the older I get the more it makes me want to puke.

Turn the desert into glass

This f**ker gave up any rights of a 'normal' life when he decided he wanted to kill American and British citizens. So no bleeding hearts for him now 'cause it's Xmas - And by rights he doesn't believe in Xmas anyway, so that's ok. I remember that sick video they posted of Nick Berg.......f**king animals. They're all the same - just under different names. It sums up what they think about human life. Just hand themover to the Ghurkas. They'll smile at them, then get the knives out. That'll work.

IMO, Hatred is unbecoming, no matter WHO it is.

He fought against his own nation. He is lucky he didn't receive the death penalty. I am not sure who to blame for that oversight.

However, as a person, I forgive him-- though there are consequences to his actions and he must pay those consequences. He needs to spend the rest of his sentence. . . in jail.

Well until "god" steps in and stops the madness, I reserve the right to JUDGE whoever doesn't meet the standards of a civalized society!

The bible defense is LAME. If the bible mattered so much and was the end all be all of moral roadmaps then why is evil allowed to run rampant throughout the world? Why no "judgement" from god? Why is evil allowed to victomize little children and babies? There is NO WAY you can win an arguement with me using fairytales and stories from a book written eons ago as your platform.

Maybe if we DID start to judge and condemn the evil of the world and NOT wait for a fictitious character to deal with it in the "afterlife", maybe we could live much happier lives knowing that our kids don't have to worry about getting kidnapped and raped while waiting for a school bus.

Nothing gets me more fired up than someone using the bible as some means of absolute integrity!

Legal system? What a joke!

If the legal system worked there wouldn't be a list of child rapists to search to see if one lives in your neighborhood! Go ahead do a search for pedophiles in your area! Bet theres one within a mile of your house!

Can't judge accurately? More crap! Man rapes child. Man is stoned in public then tortured till dead! Simple and the only accuracy needed is in the throwing of the rocks!

The biblical definition of forgiveness does not always exclude punishment.

Even in the case of Jesus dying on the cross.....I am "forgiven" of my sins because Christ "paid the price" for them. I dont deserve death, because that price was paid.

The way that I explained biblical forgiveness to my children when they were little, is that if one of them was throwing a ball and knocked out one of our windows...I could forgive them for doing it and it takes nothing away from the love I have for them...BUT...they will have to pay for the window as the direct result. If I decide to pay for the window...its not forgiveness...its mercy.

Mercy.....is the act of NOT getting what you deserve through your misdeeds. I deserve Hell...but through Gods Mercy...the price was paid so that I was forgiven of that debt.

Two different concepts entirely.

How f-ing difficult is this to understand? :doh:

You punish a person for a crime! You put a thief in jail for theft. You execute a murderer for murder. You punish people for crimes! Just because Christianity preaches that you can't judge others, doesn't mean that you can't punish them for their crimes. Don't even think for a second that I don't want rapists and murders locked up for life! Christianity says that one should hope that criminals repent for their crimes while serving their sentences.

By the way, something like 95% of pedophiles where themselves abused as children. Tell me, wise Judge, is the abused child evil for being disgustingly twisted into a sexual predator through a series of unfortunate events? Pedophilia is a horrible crime! and pedophiles deserve to be locked up for life. But unlike you, I do not judge the mentally ill who are spending their life sentences. Many of them are evil, no doubt, but you can't judge that.

Oh, I agree...remember, I'm opposed to letting him out of jail, and I was guilty of coming up with ways to make his experience as miserable as possible before Preacher rightly called us out for it.

Left-handed? That's a new one on me. You should have reminded her of the judge that delivered Israel precisely because he was left-handed and came from the tribe Benjamin--which means "Son of my right hand". Told her God made him a lefty to deliver the nation... and watch her blow her top!!

. You should have reminded her of the judge that delivered Israel precisely because he was left-handed and came from the tribe Benjamin--which means "Son of my right hand". Told her God made him a lefty to deliver the nation... and watch her blow her top!!

If I'd known that then Preacher, I would'ave quite happily said that to her, (assuming an Eight year old is capable of such profound statements :wink02:)........but considering she was the token 'Nasty Teacher' I'd probably not be around now, which a lot of people would probably think would be a good thing! :yikes:

But at least now I know why I'm here! :wink02:.........sorry couldn't resist that!

Believe it or not, I dislike that type of thing probably more than you do. . . because I KNOW that she should have known better, and it was (if she was a Christian) one of my colleagues that failed to teach her properly.

I actually do believe you Preacher........believe it or not! :wink02: :thumbsup:

That ain't as bad as what my priest did.

Images I didn't need now entering my head...........Thanks! :cya:
