SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The father of American-born Taliban soldier John Walker Lindh says his son is handling prison well nearly a decade after being captured on the battlefield in Afghanistan.

Frank Lindh told students at the University of San Francisco School of Law on Wednesday that his son, now 30, spends his days studying ancient Islamic texts and is earning a liberal arts degree from the University of Indiana.

John Walker Lindh is being held in special unit of a Terre Haute, Ind., federal prison.

Lindh's father spoke as part of an ongoing campaign to clear his son's name of what he calls government and media smears connecting the younger Lindh to terrorism.
