David Rohde's Return to Freedom

I am pleased and greatly relieved by the news that New York Times reporter David Rohde is safe and will be reunited soon with his wife and family. Throughout this ordeal, our prayers have been with David, Kristen and their family as we provided resources and assistance from the State Department. I would like to thank the governments of Pakistan and Afghanistan for their assistance in ensuring his safe return. Journalists put themselves at risk every day to report the news in regions gripped by conflict. We rely on their vital role and I am grateful for their service.
