Analyst Testifies Behind Closed Doors At Lindh Trial

John Walker Lindh is serving time in a Communications Management Unit in Terre Haute for supporting terrorists.

The top intelligence analyst for the federal prison at Terre Haute testified behind closed doors for 45 minutes, in trial where a Taliban fighter says his religious rights are being violated because the prison does not allow daily group prayer.

In open court, the analyst contradicted John Walker Lindh‘s claim that group prayer was allowed until 2009. He says it has always been prohibited except for one weekly gathering for all faiths.

And he says Muslim inmates’ designation of one person as prayer leader violates a ban on any prisoner having a leadership role. The analyst says that undermines prison officials’ authority.
