Daughter of slain CIA officer appeals to Trump to stop ‘American Taliban’ release: ‘Slap in the face’ to all killed on 9/11

Both the daughter and the father of a CIA officer who was murdered in Afghanistan shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks are speaking out against the upcoming early release from prison of John Walker Lindh, an American-born terrorist affiliated with both the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

“I’ve spent 18 years without my dad. It never crossed my mind that the United States would let someone like this out early,” Alison Spann, now 27, said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “Lindh is a traitor, and I think his early release is a slap in the face.”

Shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks, Spann’s father, CIA paramilitary officer and former Marine Johnny “Mike” Spann, was deployed to northern Afghanistan for an undisclosed mission.

“Less than two months later — and moments after he had been questioning a bedraggled Taliban detainee named John Walker Lindh — he was killed by a mob of prisoners attempting to escape from the remote fortress of Qala-i-Jangi,” the Examiner reported.

Spann’s mother reportedly died of cancer a month later.

Upon his recapture, Lindh was identified as a California-born man who had converted to Islam at the age of 16 and later traveled to the Middle East, trained with al-Qaeda and joined the Taliban. He was eventually returned to the states and sentenced to 20 years in prison.

During his sentencing hearing on Oct. 4, 2002, he tearfully expressed remorse and claimed his decision to join the Taliban had been a mistake. However, the evidence suggests he’d been lying.
