Matthew Rosenberg Expulsion and espionage accusations
On November 5, 2009, The Nation newspaper in Pakistan printed a front-page story accusing Rosenberg of being a spy. The story reported that Rosenberg worked for the CIA, the U.S. security contractor previously known as Blackwater, and had ties to Israeli intelligence.
The Wall Street Journal Managing Editor Robert Thomson wrote to The Nation’s editor, Shireen Mazari, protesting the story soon after the article was published.
The Wall Street Journal‘s named Daniel Pearl kidnapped and murdered in 2002 in Pakistan had been labelled a Jewish spy in the same manner by some members of the Pakistani media before his death.
Twenty-one editors from the world’s major international news organizations also signed a letter of protest and called the article’s accusation “unsubstantiated”, and criticizing it for compromising Rosenberg’s security. It wouldn’t be the last time Rosenberg was accused of being a spy.
Later in August 2014, Rosenberg was barred from leaving Afghanistan and also interrogated by the country’s attorney general after he wrote a story about how senior Afghan security officials were considering whether to stage what would, in essence, total to a coup because of a mounting political crisis.
The next day, the travel ban was abruptly reversed, and Rosenberg was ordered to depart Afghanistan within 24 hours.
He left Afghanistan on August 21, in compliance with the government order. Securing the decision to order out Rosenberg, a government statement addressed his story as an act of espionage, including Aimal Faizi, a spokesman for President Karzai, who said that the expulsion had been ordered at “the highest levels.”
