GUEST,colwyn dane BS: John Walker. What to do? (159* d) RE: BS: John Walker. What to do? 13 Dec 01

There was another John Walker who was part of a spy-ring operating in the USN.

The one we are discussing is no longer called John Walker but is now known as Abdul Hamid.
Walker was a convert to Islam and went to Afghanistan about 6 months ago - I do not know why he made the
switch to Islam perhaps a Saul of Tarsus or Alvin York like experience or maybe it was the gathering together of many
different threads of reason which he fashioned into his 'rope' of religious certitude.
A 'rope' that was to lead him to 'help the Taliban build a "true Islamic state."'

Did Hamid take up arms against the USA?
It has been reported he fought with the Taliban against the NA at Konduz and was part of the surrender of
foreign Taliban supporters to General Rashid Dostum. About 500 of the foreigners were interred in Kala Jangi,
the NA fortress, which became the site of a four day battle between prisoners and the NA.
Hamid survived the bombing and the action to suppress the armed Taliban POW's in Kala Jangi - he seems to have used up a
few of his nine lives in doing so. Technically he was a prisoner of the NA who handed him over to the USA.

What should happen to Hamid?
The Jane Fonda case - being involved in propaganda warfare for the NV/VC whilst US forces were dying at a steady rate in IndoChina - surely has created a precedence.

Until state-sponsored terrorism goes out of business Abdul Hamid should be treated as a hostile POW
and interned on Shark Island or wherever the US Colditz is located.
