My time as a prisoner of the Taliban

In the summer of 2007, Jere Van Dyk, a journalist working for CBS news, arrived in Kabul, Afghanistan. Few reporters knew the region as he did; he had first gone to Afghanistan as a young man in the 1970's, and he traveled extensively with the mujahideen in the early 1980's as they fought against the Soviet Union. He was back this time to begin research on a book about the borderlands, particulrly the tribal areas of northwest Pakistan, which no Western reporters had been able to penetrate for years. The Taliban was reconstiuting itself in that region, and al-Qaeda leaders - including Osama bin Laden - were said to be in hiding there as well. Van Dyk was determined to cross the border, one way or another, to get the story.

Six months later, in mid-February 2008, Van Dyk was on his way . He and three Afghan guides had crossed into the tribal areas, hoping to reach the home of a local chieftain by nightfall. But then a dozen armed men in black turbans appeared over the crest of a hill. It was the Taliban, and he was now their prisoner. Z68
