The Book Lindh's Attorneys Do Not Want You To Read:

"This is to put you on notice that publication would be at your peril."--Brosnahan, Harris, West, Chatterjee, attorneys for John Walker Lindh.

"Yes, I Supported" the 9/11 Attack on America. - John Walker Lindh

John Walker Lindh, at age 14, was a confused, unhappy, angry little boy with a fascination for the violent rhythms of hip-hop music. By age 16, his anger was directed at Jews, Gays, Zionists, Christians, and White America. In 1998 he joined a "Pakistan-based jehadi organization" linked to terrorists wishing to overthrow the USA. He wanted to be a holy warrior. The presence of U.S. ships off the coast of Yemen was "an act of war against Islam" he declared. He journeyed to Yemen on a mission which coincided with the bombing of the USS Cole. Mission accomplished, John Walker left for Pakistan and met with Taliban officials, and then journeyed to Afghanistan where he swore allegiance to Osama bin Laden who preached "Death to America." But was it the USA which John Walker wished to destroy, or his unknown face? John Walker was at war with himself for he hated and sought to destroy his true identity. He called himself "doodoo" but pretended he was a Black "gangsta" rap star wannabe, and announced he would "remain anonymous" because of homosexuality. He was not a "worthless dickrider" but an imitation Muslim in search of purity. Yet imitation is not reality, which is why John Walker Lindh, in picking up the martyr's gun, was aiming not for the "Great Satan" or the United States, but at something more insidious and full of sin... his unknown face.
