A harrowing story from Colombia: A few days ago, the Colombian Army found Oscar Tulio Lizcano, a former congressman whom the FARC had kidnapped eight years earlier. Lizcano walked through the jungle for three days without food or rest, carried at the end by his former captor, a 28-year old who helped him to escape from the FARC prison. “I’m sorry if I say incoherent things,” Lizcano told the press, “but I have spent eight years without talking.” He said his main regret was leaving behind love poems he had recently written for his wife. Lizcano is the third high profile hostage to escape in the past two years. Twenty-eight politicians and soldiers, among hundreds of others, are still captive in the Colombian jungle.
