America could have saved him

quote:
I cannot compare my captivity in Lebanon to that of hostages in Iraq, because Hizbollah never threatened us with decapitation. The isolation and worry about family, however, must be the same.

Interestingly, the guerrillas who held me hostage hated Saddam and wanted his overthrow - out of sympathy with fellow Shia Muslims in Iraq - as much as Bush and Blair would later. One of their charges against America at the time was that it supported him.

I know you don't like the title of the other thread on Bigley, but it's here, it's somewhat on topic, so I'm closing this.
