New York Times Journalist Escapes From The Taliban

Great story about journalist David Rohde who was kidnapped by the Taliban seven months ago while researching a book in Afghanistan. The NYT and other newspapers kept quiet about the kidnapping for fear that it might endanger his life. That is no small feat. This is also not the first time Rohde has been held hostage while reporting a story. He was captured and held in Bosnia in 1995 while reporting on the massacre of Bosnian Muslims during the conflict in the Balkans.
