Richard Butler on being held hostage
CBS News journalist Richard Butler discusses his ordeal at the hands of kidnappers in the southern Iraqi city of Basra. He was held for two months until the Iraqi Army rescued him. Butler talks with fellow CBS reporter Allen Pizzey,
I am standing there, in front of these eight guys with AK-47s, and I am in a pair of underpants and a T-shirt. The odds are not in my favor. So there is no point in trying to do anything heroic or stupid because it’s not going to work. link
Butler is currently recuperating at his house in France. He plans to report from the world’s danger spots again, however he does not plan on heading back to Basra anytime soon.
