BRITISH JOURNALIST YVONNE RIDLEY

03/30/04

Ridley entered Afghanistan illegally, shortly after 9/11. She was captured by the Taliban and eventually released. Later she converted to Islam. She is a critic of the U.S. role in Afghanistan where she says the U.S. backed government is holding on by a thin margin and the countryside is rapidly being taken over by radical Islamists.
