The federal judge in the John Walker Lindh case will not allow Lindh's lawyers to conduct pre-trial interviews with Taliban and al Qaeda detainees. Lindh is known as the "American Taliban." Instead, Lindh's attorneys will submit questions to military personnel, who will interview the detainees and videotape the answers. NPR's Greg Allen reports that Judge T.S. Ellis' ruling is a setback to Lindh's defense.
