Former POW Offers Perspective

Former hostage has unique perspective on captive soldier

Former Middle East captive Terry Anderson says the words of those holding an Ohio soldier hostage are encouraging, although Keith Matthew Maupin must be very frightened. Anderson was the chief Middle East correspondent for The Associated Press when he was kidnapped in 1985 by pro-Iranian Shiite Muslims. He was released in 1991. He said today it's a good sign gunmen holding the 20-year-old soldier from Batavia, known to most at Matt, aren't making outrageous threats. Anderson says it's hard to find positive things to say and that Maupin is bound to feel frightened and helpless. But he adds that at least the soldier's family knows he's alive. He says it's also a plus that Maupin is physically and mentally fit and has been trained on prisoner of war behavior.
