Lindh and Rahman

July 25, 2002

Does anyone but me see the irony in the cases of the idealistic but clueless 21-year-old John Walker Lindh, who just got a stiff federal prison sentence for fighting for the Taliban, and the equally idealistic and clueless 16-year-old Bahram Rahman, who left his home in Pakistan to fight for the Taliban and is now being held indefinitely in appalling conditions in Dasht-i-Shardian by Afghan warlords (July 21)? It would seem that their grieving parents have a good deal in common.
