American Taliban wants out early


John Walker Lindh is asking for a lighter sentence than the one he did a plea bargain for. His lawyer states:

' "As passions have cooled, it became clearer to people that John was a young man ... who was in the wrong place at the wrong time," said Lindh's attorney, James Brosnahan of San Francisco. "Hopefully, this president or some future president will reduce his sentence." '
Funny, I don't see the words "remorse", "sorry", "wrong" or anything like it. Not that these words are a get out of jail free card in my book, but to ask for a lighter sentence without apology is a kick in the teeth to the soldiers he endangered by fighting on the other side.

    So easy to kick in our patriotic fighting men in the teeth. Everything is a kick in teeth or a slap in the face these days.

    You are right, it is an overly used figure of speech these days and I am probably guilty of it, too. This, however, is an appropriate usage of it. It would be a kick in the teeth if Lindh were release early.
