More on the America traitor, John Walker Lindh. Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby (the only conservative on the staff of the paper) takes to task Walker's parents for what their son became.

Newsweek calls it ''truly perplexing'' that John Lindh, who ''grew up in possibly the most liberal, tolerant place in America ... was drawn to the most illiberal, intolerant sect in Islam.'' There is nothing perplexing about it. He craved standards and discipline. Mom and Dad didn't offer any. The Taliban did.

The biography of Walker's life that has been created since he was discovered among the murders of CIA agent Johnny "Mike" Spahn reads like that of a spoiled, never-disciplined child.

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6

It's too bad that Walker's devout Catholic father didn't practice that. His son might have turned out differently.
