Freelance Journalist and war correspondent James Foley arrived in Libya from Afghanistan in March 2011 to cover the Libyan revolution. Three weeks later he was ambushed by Loyalists forces, along with two other reporters, one of whom was killed. After over six weeks in captivity, Foley was released, and he returned to Libya to report on the final days of the Gaddafi regime. In this talk at San Diego State University he describes his experiences.
