President Bush called him a "poor fellow" and "misled".
Rumsfeld was a bit more cold on the issue.

I really don't care what this drunken frat boy moron, who wasn't even properly elected president, has to say about anything, much less international politics.
As for Rumsfeld, he's a racist, Nazi son of a bitch that is the most un-American traitor to come down the pike in decades. Try HIS fascist ass for treason before you try my old friend John Lindh.
Questions about "my old friend?" See the threat elsewhere in this same area (I think it's titled "An American in the Taliban?") for slightly more details. I knew the guy, back in the mid-90s. It's interesting to see how the media and the general public are responding, in light of the fact that I have some historical background and semi-personal knowledge of the guy to go on.
Before we blindly echo criticisms and condemnations made by talking heads in the administration, we'd do well to evaluate said talking heads, and consider the source. I have no respect for these devils.
