"I am just a father whose son got into some trouble,"
"Our system broke down in the case of John Lindh."
"People wanted to get someone and blame someone."
"This is the story of a decent, honorable young man who embarked on a religious quest."
This is all very familiar: Avoidance of individual responsibility is the sine qua non of contemporary leftism. It's all the fault of society ("the system").
