NATO Forces Free Kidnapped Reporter in Afghanistan

Here's one for the good guys this morning from Afghanistan..even though the released hostage was a New York Slimes traitor we still don't want the enemy to hurt or kill any allied brothers and sisters, no matter how screwy they are or where they are

In this case the reporter is a dual Irish British citizen. So anyhow it's nice to see the report and now knowing that the enemy doesn't have any human bargaining chips since the British/Scottish governments are in free fall as a result of the totally misguided release of the hated and only convicted Lockerbie terrorist a couple weeks ago ....don't need anymore of those so called deals/

VOA News "NATO forces in Afghanistan Wednesday freed a New York Times reporter held hostage by militants, though his interpreter and a British soldier were killed in the operation."

Stephen Farrell, a dual Irish-British citizen, was abducted Saturday while reporting on the aftermath of a controversial NATO air strike in the northern province of Kunduz.

Farrell told the Times that his interpreter, Sultan Munadi, who was kidnapped at the same time, was shot dead during the rescue effort. Farrell said he did not know if the fatal shots were fired by the rescuers or the militants.

An Afghan woman also was killed during the raid.

In June, another New York Times reporter, David Rohde, escaped from militants who had held him for seven months in the mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

In both cases, the newspaper, and other media outlets, kept quiet about the abductions to protect the journalists' safety.

Farrell, a veteran journalist, was kidnapped once before while reporting in Iraq in 2004.

Meantime, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen expressed concern about growing criticism about the war effort in Afghanistan.

In remarks prepared for a ceremony in the United States Wednesday, Rasmussen acknowledged that security progress has been slow. But he insisted that extremists must not be allowed to operate in Afghanistan.

He also noted the concerns about the legitimacy of the recent election. Farrell, a veteran journalist, was kidnapped once before while reporting in Iraq in 2004.


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
