Alabama hostage rescue: why some secrets will remain in the bunker: Communication professor and crisis negotiations expert Randall Rogan was interviewed following the resolution of the hostage situation in Alabama during which a five-year-old boy was kidnapped and held in an underground bunker. After the announcement that America’s most expert paramilitary counter-terrorism units collaborated with US special operations forces for the rescue, Rogan said: “This all rings of a unique covert operation.

There may be some general overview and general description of what happened, but there won’t be full, complete disclosure.”
