E-mails from a Traitor

The young John Walker left an enormous cache of nutty e-mails. Read them here.

FROM AUGUST 1995 to August 1997, John Philip Walker Lindh, the Marin County jihadist, was a frequent contributor to Internet newsgroups. As Newsweek reports in its latest issue, he used the nom de plume "doodoo."

At the outset, he pretended to be a rapper, critiquing the rhymes of another Internet poseur as "some 13 year old white kid playing smart," which would actually be a pretty fair description of himself, then a 14-year-old white kid trying to pass himself off as black. Two years later, he was "Prof. J" pontificating on the relationship of Judaism to Zionism in the newsgroup soc.religion.islam.

In between, he seems to have liquidated his comic books and video games in order to buy audio equipment. But on July 29, 1996, he suddenly pulls up short: "I've heard recently that certain musical instruments are forbidden by Islam," he writes. And by September 21, 1996, he's placing an online want ad (WTB means "wanted to buy") for recordings of Malcolm X speeches. He comes across in many places as a budding totalitarian, though it should be noted that many 15-year-old habitues of newsgroups try to sound imperious. Not that many sign their e-mails "Br. Mujahid," however.

You can retrieve the online oeuvre of the American Taliban for yourself by searching for "doodoo@hooked.net" in the newsgroups archive at Google. Or you can read them below, reformatted in chronological order. The only editing I've done is to remove the e-mail addresses of third parties and the more technical parts of the address headers. The personal webpage he refers to, http://www.hooked.net/users/doodoo/index.htm, seems no longer to exist.

I think it was good of you to point these obvious shortcomings in the original posting. The
whole thing seems very suspicious to me. The way he acts as if you're winning a prize when he's
actually buying your artwork for an extremely low price, the way the original note had many
legal notices missing, and the unproffessional presentation and reply ("I don't appreciate
this") all lead me to beleive this kid is a joke. 'I wont appreciate' being harrased by Mr.
Hirschhorn in the future, so keep in mind these are my own personal opinions and could very
well (although not very likely) be incorrect. To all artists and potential participents: if you
don't watch your back, you're likely to be stabbed.

When I read those rhymes of yours I got the idea you were some 13 year old white kid playing
smart. That "Every Black Man Should Read This Rhyme" read like a child's poetic attempt and
deepness, and was further hindered by lines like "Why do these collad greens taste so good?".
It was clearly implied that the answer to each of your questions was "because you're black",
but how does African heritage and a good hearty dose of melanin make greens taste good? That
whole rhyme was saying essentially that all black people should just stop being black and
that'd solve all our problems. Our blackness does not make white people hate us, it is THEIR
racism that causes the hate. That collad green line alone leads me to believe you're one of
those white kids who thinks that if he eats enough collad greens, watermellon, and fried
chicken, and sags his pants low enough, he'll attain the right to call himself "nigga". If I
wanted to hear the repitition and glorification of racial stereotypes, I'd buy a Too $hort
record. Rhymes like yours are leading to the pollution and oversaturation of wack rhymes on
this newsgroup. Before you post these preteen level meaningless duck rhymes of yours, I suggest
you consider the fact that hundreds of people from across the world are going to have to suffer
through them as I did.

Last night on Tom Snyder he had the woman on whom this story was based on the show. I only
caught the last few minutes of the interview, but I do remember that she had some subtly
racist things to say. Apparently, she had joined the US military earlier in her life, so this
is not much of a suprise. The first time I saw ads for this movie I thought it to one of those
typical "Aryan Super-Woman saves poor mislead African's and Latino's" movies, and having found
out that it was written and directed by white people, and clearly for white people, my opinion
has not since changed. Another thing to think about is that there are uncountable black and
hispanic teachers in inner-city communities who 'reach the kids' and do an outstanding job, but
being the hollywood they are and always have been, they have to choose the story of a white
woman to make a movie about. I need to take over the world now, so peace love and englobiness..

Subject: Question: Musical Instruments & Islam
Date: 1996/07/29
organization: Hooked Online Services
newsgroups: alt.religion.islam

I've heard recently that certain musical instruments are forbidden by Islam. There is nothing in the Qur'an that I can find relating to this matter, and the Hadith that I've read were fairly vague.
My question is this: are in fact certain musical instruments haram, and if so, which instruments or types of instruments are they?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

doodoo@hooked.net

[This question received two answers: 1) "The only instrument I know of that can be played is a drum and only before going to Jihad, you know, to gather everyone up. Besides that, music can be played at a marriage (though I think people go too far these days). All other types of instruments at any other events is haram. And 2) "Salaam Alaikum. There are no specific types of instruments to be played or not to be played. Islam is a religion of logic. It means Islam tells us do not believe in things which conveys no meaning to you. Why should Islam forbids or allows certain types of musical instruments ? Overall musical intruments have different types of sounds, drums have their own beats and guitar has its own. Drums sounds loud and can be heard from a distance , that is why they were used in the time of Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him. But it does not mean that drums are the only instruments we are allowed to play. We can play any type of musical instrument what we like and also we can listen on the stereo. What ever we do it must be within the limits of Islam. It means we should not include any type of sexusal behavior or loose our minds while listening the music, like many Western countries people do.]

Often when someone says something incredibly stupid, the people around
them will respond with remarks such as "what are you smoking?" and
"are you drunk?," illustrating the obvious fact that intoxicated
people do not think on the same level as normal humans.
With this in mind, are you then trying to say that you'd have to be
dwelling on a lower level of consiousness in order to appreciate
Hip-Hop music? That sounds as thought you're trying to insult Hip-Hop
rather than 'stay true' to it, as you usually seem to be trying to do.
Have you finally given up on Hip-Hop? Are you ready to move on to
heavy metal this month, or is it back to alternative rock like last
month? Please keep rec.music.hip-hop posted, we all love to hear your

I'm looking for a used DR-660 in good working condition. I'm not sure
if this is an accessory or if it comes with the 660, but I'd also
definitely want the AC adaptor. Thank you.

I'm looking for either one of these machines. I do know what each of
these is worth, so please don't bother me with insanely high "vintage"
prices. Thank you.

For sale: E-mu Drumulator with full midi compatibility and the original
instructions. This machine is in perfect working condition, and good
physical condition. The corners are dented a little bit, but the whole
thing is built like a tank and would be very difficult to do any real
damage to (you could probably jump up and down on it without hurting
anything). For those who are unfamiliar with this machine, it's a
digital drum machine from the early eighties somewhat similar to a Linn
Drum. It has an especially good handclap, and thick punchy sounds with
eight individual outputs. I've seen these without midi go for $200, but
they're really not worth that much. I'll take any offers over $100, and
I'll ship COD.

Can anybody tell me what exactly a TalkBox is, how it works, and how
it's different from a vocoder? I've heard that they're dangerous in some
way, but I'm willing to risk bodily harm in order to get my voice to
sound like Roger Troutman. If anyone has any information on their
dangers, how much they cost, or any other comments about them, I'd
appreciate it. Respond e-mail or e-mail & newsgroup please; I don't
frequent Usenet. Thank you.

I don't know what a TalkBox is, or how it works, but I know what it
sounds like and I want one. If it has pieces that fit inside your mouth,
I don't care. I can find a way of cleaning it. I want a TalkBox. Sell me
one. Thank you.
