But none of that has any relevance to the question of whether Lindh broke any laws that merited being put on trial for his life.

"Please sir, the United States airforce has just started bombing this country - would it be all right I resigned from the Taliban".

As for Steve Earle's rights in this issue, unlike a lot of countries, you in the United Staes have a constitutional right of free speech. Anyone who suggests that Steve Earle doesn't have the right to make a song like this and sing it is, I'd suggest, attempting to subvert the constitution of the United States.
