    asked for a media blackout out of the reasonable belief that his release was more likely to be obtained if it didn't become a national news story that he was being held a la Daniel Pearl.  I only heard the rumors as of late last night, which, with the time change, may have been after he already escaped.

    "The first drawback of anger is that it destroys your inner peace; the second is that it distorts your view of reality. If you come to understand that anger is really unhelpful, you can begin to distance yourself from anger." - The Dalai Lama
