Strangely enough, though the arrest and release of Riep occurred before the NY Times article appeared on June 14, neither one was mentioned by Tina Rosenberg. Clearly she must have known about this since it was reported in the Washington Post on June 6, as well as several Canadian papers on June 7 and June 11. Also omitted from her article was any mention of the decisions of the Kenyan and Uganda governments to halt the expansion of Bridge International schools.
