1. SOUNDBITE (English) Mike Pompeo, U.S. Secretary of State ++PARTIALLY COVERED BY NEXT SHOT++
POMPEO: "Unexplainable and unconscionable. I led the CIA, Johnny Michael Spann was one of ours."
HOST: "He's on the wall."
POMPEO: "He's Is on the wall. He's a man of enormous integrity and courage. And we're now allowing someone who was involved in his death out of jail after what is a relatively short sentence. I think it calls for a review of our processes, all the things that went into this day where he's being allowed out early. I think we need to review it all. He's still, as I understand it, still is threatening the United States Americans, and is still get admitted to the very jihad that he engaged in that killed a great American and a great CIA officer. There's something deeply troubling about this."
HOST: "He still calls for extremist violence. So how is that good behavior?"
POMPEO: "Yeah. You'd have to ask the judge who is disconnected from my understanding of good behavior in the most fundamental way. I can't account for how you could look at someone like this fellow and his continued views on the world and describe..."
HOST: "The family as so upset the family of the CIA..."
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the early release of John Walker Lindh from federal prison is "unexplainable and unconscionable."
Lindh was released Thursday from a facility in Indiana, having served 17 years of a 20-year sentence.
Pompeo told "Fox and Friends" that the so-called "American Taliban" continues to pose a threat.
He called for a review of the prison system's early release policies.
The young man from Northern California had joined the Taliban and was with them in Afghanistan during the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Lindh also was there when a group of Taliban prisoners rose up and killed CIA officer Johnny Micheal "Mike" Spann.
Lindh struck a plea bargain in which he admitted to illegally providing support to the Taliban but denied a role in Spann's death.
