Meetings with Lindh prompt move to revoke convict's release

A northern Virginia man convicted nearly a decade ago of supporting the Islamic State group as a teenager has now been accused of violating his terms of release by meeting with convicted Taliban supporter John Walker Lindh.

According to court documents, the FBI photographed Ali Shukri Amin meeting with Lindh on three different occasions in for about three hours. The document does not state where the meetings occurred. The meetings violate a condition of Amin's supervised release, which bars him from meeting with known extremists, prosecutors said.

The meetings could have well have constituted a violation of Lindh's supervised release as well when they occurred but Lindh's term of supervised release expired last year and he is no longer subject to supervision.
