John Lindh released after 17 years

A California man dubbed the "American Taliban" following his capture on a battlefield in Afghanistan in 2001 was released from prison Thursday after serving 17 years, authorities confirmed, amid allegations of his continued adherence to extremist views.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons confirmed that John Walker Lindh, 38, who was serving his sentence at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, was no longer in its custody.

Lindh, who was convicted of providing support to the Taliban, was freed three years early for good behavior, according to CNN, which first reported the release.
