Freed reporter had been abducted before

Stephen Farrell a New York Times reporter was rescued by NATO’s International Security Assistance Force, known as the ISAF, this morning.

Crossfire in the rescue operation killed another reporter, civillians and a British commando.

But his was not the first time Farrell had been kidnapped, he was also kidnapped in Fallujia in 2004. He was was released then after showing photogrpahs of himself with long hair and pointing out that he was just bald and not a soldier

Mr. Farrell, it might be time to get another career, or perhaps stay behind a desk. Your dedication to your job is killing people, literally.

  1. It would be nice if CNN would not routinely refer to British and Canadian combat deaths in Afghanistan as “NATO”. They know what the nationalities are, have the respect to refer to them by their nation. When its a US casualty, they refer to the exact service and proper rank, anybody else, “it was some NATO guy”.

    “NATO” is not a country. Maybe if Anderson Cooper et all at CNN would visit, just ONCE, some Allied forces in the region? Just to acknowledge they exist? or are they only to report on just US citizens? is that news? They only seem interested in doing that if its a story about Prince Harry, so they can turn it into some HLN special.
