Abdul Hamid is John Walker Lindh

Reader comment on item: More Converts to Terrorism

Submitted by Mike Smith, M.A., of San Francisco (United States), Dec 7, 2005 at 12:21

When Lindh was apprehended in Afghanistan he says on my video of it "I am Abdul Hasmid", and like Cassius Clay and Lew Alcindor before him he remains Abdul Hamid, as the latter two remain Mohammed Ali and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Prominent on his right cheek is powder burns from firing thousands of rounds, his leftist lawyer Brosnahan lied that "He never fired his weapon." Yes indeed, he did.

The SF Chronicle recently reported Hamid faithfully follows the tenets of his Koran, studying constantly as a full adherent to his Muslim religion.
