NYT‘s David Rohde Keynotes ICFJ Awards Dinner

Held captive for seven months, NYT‘s David Rohde spoke of the Taliban’s strong grip on the ground in Pakistan and Afghanistan and what this means for U.S. policy as the keynote speaker for ICFJ’s 25th Anniversary Awards Dinner, held last night at the Ronald Reagan Center.

It was Rohde’s first speaking appearance since he escaped from the Taliban in June of this year. Following his presentation, Rohde sat down for a Q&A with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, ICFJ award recipient and the event’s emcee.
