John Phillip Walker Lindh (born February 9, 1981) is a U.S. citizen
who was captured as an enemy combatant during the United States'
Afghanistan in November 2001. He was captured and detained
Qala-i-Jangi fortress, used as a prison. He took part in the Battle
of Qala-i-Jangi, a violent uprising of the
Taliban prisoners, during
CIA officer Johnny "Mike" Spann was killed, together with
all but 86 of the estimated 300–500 prisoners. Brought to trial in
United States federal court in February 2002, Lindh accepted a plea
bargain; he pleaded guilty to two charges and was sentenced to 20
years in prison without parole.
A convert to
Sunni Islam in
California at age 16, Lindh traveled to
Yemen in 1998 to study Arabic and stayed there for 10 months. He later
returned in 2000, then went to
Afghanistan to aid the Taliban. He
received training at Al-Farouq, a training camp associated with
al-Qaeda, designated a terrorist organization by the
United States and
other countries. While at the camp, he attended a lecture by Osama bin
Laden. After the 9/11 attacks, he remained there to join opposing
military forces after he learned that the U.S. was allied with the
Afghan Northern Alliance. Lindh had previously received training with
Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, an internationally designated terrorist
organization based in Pakistan.
Lindh went by the name Sulayman al-Faris during his time in
Afghanistan, but prefers the name Abu Sulayman al-Irlandi today. In
early reports following his capture, when the press learned that he
was a U.S. citizen, he was usually referred to by the news media as
just "John Walker".

Youth, conversion, and travels
Lindh was born in Washington, D.C., to Marilyn Walker and Frank R.
Lindh, as the middle of three children in the family. His name
'John' was named after John Lennon, who died a year before Lindh's
birth. He was baptized a Catholic, and grew up in Silver Spring,
Maryland. When he was 10 years old, his family moved to San Anselmo,
California. Lindh suffered from an intestinal disorder as a child.
At age 14, his health improved. He enrolled at Redwood High School as
a freshman. He then transferred to Tamiscal High School in the
Tamalpais Union High School District, an alternative school offering
self-directed, individualized study programs. While there, he studied
world culture, including
Sunni Islam and the Middle East. Lindh
left the school and eventually earned an equivalent of a high school
diploma by passing the
California High School Proficiency Exam at age
As an adolescent, Lindh participated in
IRC chat rooms with the IRC
nickname Mujahid. He became a devoted fan of hip-hop music and engaged
in extensive discussions on
Usenet newsgroups, sometimes pretending to
be an African American rapper who would criticize others for "acting
black." Spike Lee's film Malcolm X impressed him deeply and
sparked his interest in Islam.
Although his parents did not divorce until 1999, their marriage was in
serious trouble throughout Lindh's adolescence. His father often left
their Marin residence for extended periods to live in San Francisco
with a male lover, as he was an acknowledged homosexual. Frank
Lindh said he and Marilyn had been in effect separated since 1997.
In 1997, at the age of 16, Lindh formally converted to Islam. He began
regularly attending mosques in Mill Valley and later in nearby San
Francisco. In 1998, Lindh traveled to Yemen and stayed for about
10 months to learn Arabic so that he could read the
Qur'an in its
original language. He returned to the
United States in 1999, living
with his family for about eight months.
Lindh returned to Yemen in February 2000 and left for Pakistan to
study at a madrassa. While abroad, Lindh sent numerous emails to his
family. In one, his father told him about the USS Cole bombing, to
which Lindh replied that the American naval destroyers being in the
Yemen harbor had been an act of war, and that the bombing was
justified. "This raised my concerns," his father told Newsweek, "but
my days of molding him were over."
At the age of 20, Lindh decided to travel to
Afghanistan to fight for
Taliban government forces against Northern Alliance
fighters. His parents said that he was moved by stories of
atrocities allegedly perpetrated by the
Northern Alliance army against
civilians. He traveled to
Afghanistan in May 2001. Tony West, his
lawyer, explained it as follows: "One of the first things he told Army
interrogators when they questioned him on December 3, 2001, was that
after 9/11 happened, he wanted to leave the front lines but couldn't
for fear of his life. John never wanted to be in a position where he
was opposing the
United States (and never thought he would be), and in
fact he never opposed any American military."
Capture and interrogation
Lindh was captured on November 25, 2001, by Afghan Northern Alliance
forces after his foreign fighters unit surrendered at
retreating from Takar. He and other fighters were to be questioned
CIA officers Johnny "Mike" Spann and Dave "Dawson" Tyson at
General Dostum's military garrison, Qala-i-Jangi, near Mazār-e
Sharīf. During the initial questioning, Lindh was not advised of his
rights and his request for a lawyer was denied.
After being detained, Lindh first said that he was Irish. While being
interviewed by the CIA, he did not reveal that he was
American. Spann asked Lindh, "Are you a member of the IRA?"
He was asked this question because, when questioned by Spann, an Iraqi
in the group identified Lindh as an English speaker. Lindh had been
told to say he was "Irish" in order to avoid problems. Moments
later, around 11 am, the makeshift prison was the scene of a
Taliban uprising, which became known as the Battle of
Qala-i-Jangi. Spann and hundreds of foreign fighters were killed; only
86 prisoners survived. According to other detainees interviewed by the
Robert Young Pelton for CNN, Lindh was fully aware of the
planned uprising, yet remained silent and did not cooperate with the
Sometime during the initial uprising, Lindh was shot in the right
upper thigh and found refuge in a basement, hiding with a group of
Arab, Uzbek, and Pakistani detainees. On the second day, the Red Cross
sent in workers to collect the dead. As soon as they entered, the
workers were shot by the prisoners, who killed one. The Northern
Alliance repeatedly bombarded the area with RPG and grenade attacks,
and set alight fuel it poured in. Finally, on December 2, 2001,
Northern Alliance forces diverted an irrigation stream into the middle
of the camp to flush the remaining prisoners out of their underground
shelters, drowning many in the process. Lindh and about 85
survivors from the original 300–500 were forced out of hiding.
Northern Alliance soldiers bound Lindh's elbows behind his back.
Shortly after his recapture, Lindh was noticed and interviewed by
Pelton, who was working as a stringer for CNN. Lindh initially gave
his name as "Abd-al-Hamid" but later gave his birth name. Pelton
brought a medic and food for Lindh and interviewed him about how he
got there. During the interview, Lindh said that he was a member of
al-Ansar, a group of Arabic-speaking fighters financed by Osama bin
Laden. Lindh said that the prison uprising was sparked by some of the
prisoner guards smuggling grenades into the basement, "This is against
what we had agreed upon with the Northern Alliance, and this is
against Islam. It is a major sin to break a contract, especially in
military situations". A U.S. Army
Special Forces operator, fresh
from three weeks of combat, gave up his bed so that the wounded Lindh
could sleep there. Pelton repeatedly asked Lindh if he
wanted to call his parents or have the journalist do so, but Lindh
Lindh photographed after being transported to Camp Rhino
After capture, Lindh was given basic first aid and questioned for a
week at Mazār-e Sharīf. He was taken to
Camp Rhino on December 7,
2001, the bullet still within his thigh. When Lindh arrived at
Camp Rhino, he was stripped and restrained on a stretcher, blindfolded
and placed in a metal shipping container, which was procedure for
dealing with a potentially dangerous detainee associated with a
terrorist organization. While bound to the stretcher, he was
photographed by some American military personnel. At Camp Rhino,
he was given oxycodone/paracetamol for pain and diazepam.
On December 8 and 9, he was interviewed by the FBI  and was
mirandized on December 9 or 10. He was held at
Camp Rhino until he
was transferred to the USS Peleliu on December 14, 2001 with
other wounded detainees, where his wound was operated on and he
received further care. He was interrogated before the operation on
December 14. While on the Peleliu, he signed confession documents
while he was held by the
United States Marine Corps. On December 31,
2001, Lindh was transferred to the USS Bataan, where he was held until
January 22, 2002. He was flown back to the
United States to face
criminal charges. On January 16, 2002, Attorney General John Ashcroft
announced that Lindh would be tried in the United States.
In 2002, former President
George H. W. Bush
George H. W. Bush referred to Lindh as "some
misguided Marin County hot-tubber". The comment provoked a minor furor
and prompted a retraction of the statement by Bush. Lindh's
attorney[which?] told the press that his client had asked for a lawyer
repeatedly before being interviewed by the FBI but he did not get one,
and that "highly coercive" prison conditions forced Lindh to waive his
right to remain silent. Although the FBI asked Jesselyn Radack, a
Justice Department ethics adviser, whether Lindh could be questioned
without a lawyer present, they did not follow her advice to avoid that
On February 5, 2002, Lindh was indicted by a federal grand jury on ten
Conspiracy to murder U.S. citizens or U.S. nationals
Two counts of providing material support and resources to terrorist
One count of supplying services to the Taliban
Conspiracy to contribute services to Al Qaeda
Contributing services to Al Qaeda
Conspiracy to supply services to the Taliban
Using and carrying firearms and destructive devices during crimes of
If convicted of these charges, Lindh could have received up to three
life sentences and 90 additional years in prison. On February 13,
2002, he pleaded not guilty to all 10 charges. The court scheduled
an evidence suppression hearing, at which Lindh would have been able
to testify about the details of the torture to which he claimed he was
subjected. The government faced the problem that a key piece of
evidence – Lindh's confession – might be excluded from evidence as
having been forced under duress (i.e. torture).
Michael Chertoff, then-head of the Criminal Division of the U.S.
Department of Justice, then directed the prosecutors to offer Lindh a
plea bargain. Lindh could plead guilty to two charges: supplying
services to the
Taliban (50 U.S.C. § 1705(b), 18
U.S.C. § 2, 31 C.F.R. 545.204, and 31 C.F.R. 545.206a) and
carrying an explosive during the commission of a felony (18
U.S.C. § 844(h)(2)). He would have to consent to a gag
order that would prevent him from making any public statements on the
matter for the duration of his 20-year sentence, and he would have to
drop any claims that he had been mistreated or tortured by U.S.
military personnel in
Afghanistan and aboard two military ships during
December 2001 and January 2002. In return, all other charges would be
dropped. The gag order was said to be at the request of Secretary of
Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
Lindh accepted this offer. On July 15, 2002, he entered his plea of
guilty to the two remaining charges. The judge asked Lindh to say, in
his own words, what he was admitting to: "I plead guilty. I provided
my services as a soldier to the
Taliban last year from about August to
December. In the course of doing so, I carried a rifle and two
grenades. I did so knowingly and willingly knowing that it was
illegal." Lindh said that he "went to
Afghanistan with the intention
of fighting against terrorism and oppression," fighting for the
suffering of ordinary people at the hands of the Northern Alliance.
On October 4, 2002, Judge
T.S. Ellis III formally imposed the
sentence: 20 years without possibility of parole.
The government invoked the
Son of Sam law and informed Lindh that any
and all profits made from book deals or any movies about Lindh's
experience would be automatically transferred to the federal
government. Lindh, his family, his relatives, his associates and his
friends will be unable to profit financially from his crimes and/or
experiences. Lindh's attorney, James Brosnahan, said Lindh would be
eligible for release in 17 years, with good behavior. This is because,
although there is no parole under federal law, his sentence could be
reduced by 15 percent, or three years, for good behavior. Lindh agreed
to cooperate "fully, truthfully and completely" with both military
intelligence and law enforcement agencies in the terrorism
In January 2003 Lindh was sent to the U.S. Penitentiary, Victorville,
a high-security facility northeast of Los Angeles. On March 3,
2003, Lindh was tackled by inmate Richard Dale Morrison. He assaulted
Lindh at prayer, causing bruises on his forehead. On July 2, 2003,
Morrison was charged with a misdemeanor count of assault.
Lindh was held in Federal
ADX Florence in Florence, Colorado
for a short time. He is currently serving his sentence as prisoner
45426-083, with a projected release date of May 23, 2019, at the
Federal Correctional Institution at
Terre Haute, Indiana
Terre Haute, Indiana in the
Communication Management Unit.
In April 2007, citing the reduced sentence for the Australian prisoner
David Matthew Hicks, Lindh's attorneys made a public plea for a
Presidential commutation to lessen his 20-year sentence. In January
2009, the Lindh family's petition for clemency was denied by President
Bush in one of his final acts in office. According to the U.S.
Department of Justice, all "special administrative measures" in place
against Lindh expired on March 20, 2009, as part of a gradual easing
of restrictions on him.
In 2010 Lindh and the Syrian-American prisoner
Enaam Arnaout sued to
lift restrictions on group prayer by Muslim inmates in the
Communication Management Unit. On January 11, 2013, a federal
judge ruled in their favor, saying that the government had shown no
compelling interest in restricting the religious speech of the inmates
by prohibiting them from praying together.
According to an internal report by the National Counterterrorism
Center, Lindh told a visiting television news producer that he has not
renounced extremist violence. Lindh secured Irish citizenship in
2013 through his paternal grandmother, Kathleen Maguire, who was born
