I'm not sure how you can, on an anarchist forum, call the guy a 'traitor'. He's an idiot, not a traitor. A traitor betrays the cause he hitherto believed in. There is no evidence to suggest that Lindh was ever a US patriot, so he can't really be described as a traitor. John Walker Lindh chose to believe in a superficial and destructive philosophy, and he chose to kill people in an attempt to impose that philosophy upon others undemocratically. The guy is a violent moron, not a traitor.
