UNITED STATES (WSYR-TV) — The man known as “The American Taliban” is set to be released from federal prison this week and that has some people concerned.
Lindh was captured during the invasion of Afghanistan back in 2001.
He was sentenced a year later to 20 years for providing support to the Taliban.
Now, Lindh is scheduled to be released on Thursday after serving 17 years of that sentence.
It is unclear where he will be going after his release.
