On August 13, 2004, Garen and his Iraqi translator, Amir Doushi, were kidnapped and held hostage in Nasiriya in southern Iraq. On August 19, a video aired on al-Jazeera in which Garen appeared sitting on the floor in front of masked insurgents with weapons making demands for his release. His captors eventually turned Garen and his translator over to representatives of Moqtada al-Sadr in Nasiriya. They were released unharmed on August 22, 2004.
