Just in: John Walker will be charged with aiding and abetting terrorists (CNN)
Update: From press conference. Four charges which can result in life in prison. He will be charged in civilian court.
One of the basic components of the charges was Walker’s attendance of an Al-Queda training camp, and meeting with Osama Bin Laden. Another is that he admits that he heard about the September 11th terrorists acts, but still kept fighting with the Taliban. This is based on his own discussions with the Military. (BBIRD – However, how admissible this will be will be dependent on his access to legal representation at the time of the discussions.)
