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!"



You can't fire a gun in a confined space! What are you tring to do, make us deaf?!"
"Just get out of the chopper."
"What?"
"Get out of the chopper!"
"The crops!?" - Jack Lemmon and James Garner, "My Fellow Americans", and the reason I say "The crops?" instead of "Huh?"

    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.
