here's an odd excerpt:
----
U.S. Attorney Paul McNulty told reporters after the hearing, "This was a good opportunity for the government to get a very good result." He said he had no doubts in the strength of the government's case, and that a 20-year sentence "sends a very strong message to anyone who would be at all tempted to turn their backs on the United States."

"America, love it or leave it. If you leave it, we'll come after ya!"

    When the judge asked Lindh what he was guilty of, the 21-year-old Californian answered: "I provided my services as a soldier to the Taliban last year, from about August to November. In the course of doing so I carried a rifle and two grenades. And I did so knowingly and willingly, knowing that it was illegal."

    ...

    Although Lindh never fired on American forces, Bellows said he committed a felony by fighting in support of the Taliban, whose "control of Afghanistan provided protection and sanctuary for al Qaeda."




I didn't realize this was a felony charge. When were these laws passed???

from the link, end of 3rd paragraph:

Lindh agreed to plead guilty to one count--willfully supplying services to the Taliban--and also to one new count filed today, carrying an explosive device while committing a felony.
