US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News on Thursday that John Walker Lindh, the first US-born detainee in the War on Terror, is still a threat to the United States, and is “still committed to the very jihad that he engaged in that killed a great American and a great CIA officer”.
After serving 17 years of a 20-year sentence for pleading guilty to providing support to Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, US citizen John Walker Lindh has been released from a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, on probation, authorities said.

She was supported by her grandfather, Johnny Spann, who also urged Trump not to “turn him loose”, while referring to reports that suggested Lindh “continued to advocate for global jihad” as of May 2016.
