Kidnapped in Afghanistan!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

New York Times correspondents David Rohde has quite a story to tell.  He was a reporter for the Times in Afghanistan, and set out in November of 2008 to interview a Taliban commander.  Unfortunately, he was headed for nothing but trouble.  He is kidnapped and spends eight months in a Taliban make shift prison with no contact to the outside world.  Finally, eight months later, he escapes, and has quite a story to tell.  We visited recently in Washington and I was mesmerized by his wild tale. David will be a guest on my Sunday radio show in late January.  His new book is about the entire ordeal, and can be ordered by Clicking Here.
