Called a Vigilante, Praised as a Newsman

Edward Caraballo went off to Afghanistan this April with a camera in his hand. His friends and colleagues say he was chasing the story of a lifetime: the shadowy tale of Jonathan Keith Idema, a former Green Beret who claims to have fought in the Afghan war. Afghan prosecutors, however, say Mr. Caraballo did much more than follow the story. They contend that he joined forces with Mr. Idema in what amounted to a vigilante war against terrorism in the country. Last week, Mr. Caraballo, Mr. Idema and another American, Brent Bennett, were charged in Kabul with running a private jail for terror suspects in Afghanistan. The three were arrested on July 5 after the police found eight Afghans being held prisoner in Mr. Idema’s house.Full Story
