A little over two years ago, Ingrid Betancourt,  former candidate for the Presidency of Colombia, was freed in a dramatic military rescue mission after six years of being held hostage. She and other hostages, incluing three Americans, had been taken captive by narco-terrorists known as the FARC rebels.

She wrote a poetic account of those six years in her book, Even Silence Has an End: My Six Years of Captivity in the Colombian Jungle.
