Watch Pulitzer Prize-winning NYT reporter discuss Taliban capture

In case you missed it, here's a video of two-time Pulitzer prize winner David Rohde, who discussed his capture before a crowd at the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site, 20 Vesey St. His story was part of the "9/11, Today and Tomorrow" speakers series.

Rohde is the co-author of the forthcoming book “A Rope and A Prayer: The Story of A Kidnapping.” A five-part series that Rohde wrote on his captivity and escape for The New York Times was recently awarded the 2009 George Polk Award for foreign reporting.

Thanks to WNET.ORG’s THIRTEEN Forum you can watch Rohde's "Escaping the Taliban" presentation in HD online and other events in the series at , or download the events at iTunes, all for free.
