Parent Of The Year

"He certainly didn't go to Afghanistan to do anything against America. He never fought against America. He never fired a gun at an American. " And how the heck do you know that you freakin' idiot of a parent? Of whom do I rant? Frank Lindh, father of "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh. Here's a great example of liberal parenting. How many normal people would be thrilled that their 12 year old son had taken an interest in Islam after watching "Malcolm X" and then , a few years later (what, when he was 14?), allow him to convert from Roman Catholicism to Islam, go to Yemen and become an Islamic scholar? ("It's a wonderful thing for an American kid to go overseas and study, to learn another language, to learn another religion, these are great things") And they wonder why their kid is serving 20 years without possibility of parole?
