David Rohde Escapes

I first heard about the kidnapping in late 2008.  The initial information came to me in Afghanistan from a source close to Rohde.  During a subsequent trip in December with Secretary Gates, I asked a well placed source about the whereabouts and condition of Mr. Rohde.  I was told that the information suggested he had been moved from Afghanistan to Pakistan.  News about the kidnapping continued to leak, though mainstream outlets kept it quiet.  I published a small paragraph several months later, in March 2009, but then archived the paragraph based on a request from concerned parties.  Through the months, interesting information about Mr. Rohde has come my way but was always followed by a request to keep it quiet.

Welcome home David Rohde.
