Updating this thread after 17 years:
There's a major new development involving Marin County's John Walker Lindh, the so-called "American Taliban."

Lindh is scheduled to be released from a U.S. Prison Thursday after serving 17 of his 20-year sentence.

Lindh was captured in Afghanistan in 2001 and sentenced to prison for helping the Taliban after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the U.S.

He is being held at a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. Upon his release, he will be under three-year supervision. It is unclear if he will be returning to the Bay Area.
