The excellent reporter David Rohde has escaped his kidnappers.###### My latest word on Mr. Rohde came on about June 1 during a trip with Secretary Gates, when a very well placed source told me in Singapore that the Pentagon had no word on the whereabouts or condition of David Rohde.###### I first heard about the escape this morning subsequent an interview request to me from the Washington Post.

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.
