Pakistani Police Safely Recover Kidnapped American

Well it was not the Taliban that kidnapped Mr. Weinstein, they would not have found him so quickly.

I'm wondering if he is planning a trip back to the U.S.

Using tips from arrested suspects, police on Thursday safely recovered a U.S. development expert who was kidnapped almost two weeks ago in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore, a senior police official said.

Police traced the whereabouts of Warren Weinstein, 70, to Khushab city, located some 125 miles (200 kilometers) northwest of Lahore, and freed him during an early morning operation, said Lahore police chief Malik Ahmed Raza.

The U.S. Embassy in Islamabad could not immediately confirm that Weinstein had been found.
