CNN story falsely said John Walker Lindh is a "convicted terrorist"
The article, about a terrorism suspect named Michael Finton, contains the statement: "Authorities said Finton idolized convicted terrorist John Walker Lindh -- an American who was captured fighting for the Taliban in Afghanistan...." This is a grievious error. John Lindh, my son, is not a "convicted terrorist." Althought intitially accused by the U.S. Gov't of providing "services to a terrorist organization (al Qaeda)," John Lindh was exonorated in a plea bargain in which this charge was dropped. It is very harmful and defamatory to refer to John as a terrorist.
