Old timers may remember Keith Idema, and the ICS vests, which were popular in the late 80's and early 90's. He was known for the vests, and a running fued with Eddie Dovner, of USI, out of Massachusetts.

Anyway, Keith made the news again. It seems that he and two other Americans were arrested in Afghanistan, for running a vigilante anti-terrorist campaign.

According to an article credited to the New York Times, and printed in the Tampa Tribune on 11 July, page A-5, Idema, 48, and the other two, posed as government agents, and illegally imprisoned at least eight innocent Afghan men for ten days or more.

I would guess that the full story would be on the Tampa Tribune web page that it shares with WFLA-TV, Channel 8,

If not, those locally, should be able to find a copy of the Sunday, 11 July Tampa Tribune without much difficulty.
