Bin Laden’s Gone. Can My Son Come Home?

Here is an op-ed in the New York Times by Frank R. Lindh, a lawyer and the father of the young American man who was convicted of aiding the Taliban in Afghnistan. He begins:

ON the evening of May 1, we learned that Osama bin Laden had been killed. The following dawn, I left my house in the Bay Area to catch a bus to Oakland International Airport. I flew to Indianapolis for a scheduled visit with my son, John Walker Lindh, at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind.

I love my son. I enjoy our periodic visits and our weekly telephone calls, but this visit felt different. “If Bin Laden is dead,” I kept thinking, “why can’t John come home?”
