An American who became a Taliban militant and took up arms against the U.S military will be released from federal prison in May.
John Walker Lindh traveled to Afghanistan in 2001 to join forces with the Islamist militant group. He was later captured by American forces after the invasion of the country that year, and was returned to the United States to face ten felony charges involving providing aid to the enemy.
Lindh, also known as simply ‘John Walker,’ is possibly one of the first individuals from an American or Western background to be radicalized into Islamist extremism. A native of California, he converted to Islam when he was 16 years old and traveled to nations such as Pakistan and Yemen to familiarize himself with the religion.
It’s said that Walker Lindh has declined to fully renounce the Islamist beliefs that led him to travel to Afghanistan, even though he’ll be released after completing 17 years of a 20 year prison sentence in May. A document from the National Counterterrorism Center alleges that Lindh has played a role in translating Islamist extremist texts while in prison.
Walker is said to have obtained Irish citizenship from a grandparent, and is planning on taking up residence in Ireland upon his release.
Islamist militants imprisoned by the United States have been known to return to violent extremism after completing their prison sentences.
Individuals affiliated with the Afghan Taliban who were freed in a prisoner-of-war swap for U.S Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl are known to have reestablished ties with the Afghan Islamist organization.

18-Wheel Truck’s Supply of Toilet Paper Goes Up in Flames in Texas Crash
This wouldn’t normally be national news.
A truck hauling a full load of toiler paper crashed in the Dallas area early Wednesday morning, with precious cargo being ruined.
The crash occurred in I-20 in South Dallas, temporarily shutting down four lanes of the highway. Reports indicate that the driver fell asleep at the wheel. Fortunately, neither he nor the dog on board suffered serious injuries, along with anyone else.
The loss of an entire truckload of toilet paper destined to San Antonio from Alabama is certainly a loss, however. The personal sanitation products have been in high demand since the beginning of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, with many of the nation’s grocery stores being perpetually sold out of the products.
Some retailers have adopted new policies prohibited customers from hoarding toilet paper. Delivery businesses have also taken to offering a free roll of the paper to customers purchasing their products.
Reports indicate that the driver fell asleep at the wheel, perhaps taxed by the urgent demand for the products. Some trucking regulations prohibiting drivers from working more than 11 hours a day have been temporarily suspended by the Trump administration with the hopes of allowing America’s essential retailers to stock the shelves to meet renewed demand.
The freeway reopened later in the day.
Crash spills toilet paper across I-20 in South Dallas. A semi heading to San Antonio from Alabama rolls over catching fire. Avoid I-20 westbound at I-45 if possible. It will take crews a few hours to clean up the paper mess. No one was hurt in the crash. pic.twitter.com/1jtr1BNRwO
