I have a feeling that Lindhouts book will be a great disappointment. it will come out this spring which is soon.
my prediction is that she will give very few details of her captivity, will never answer the rape baby question, but will spend page after page defending these "kids" as if they were victims. Like it wasn't "their" fault.
her stockholm syndrome will be very evident when reading the book.
Her strategy will be right out of the Lara Logan playbook of deception. She will talk about what happened in very vague statements. to where when you read them they could imply almost anything. and after reading it you will put the book down and still not know what the fuck happened.
these female journlists are all coniving bitches.
Lindhout should give ALL the details, and talk more of revenge, and the need to punish not only the captors but the whole population as well. force is the only language the third world understands.
Lindhout confronted other members of this terrorist group at some confrenence some time back and laid into him about their tattics so she is not going to candy coat what they did or who they are but will not cover the extreme details of the time spent with them

Lindhout just doesn't want to say they pooped on her face. She'll probably admit to pulling nightly gangbangs but not the humiliating stuff like being forced to drink her own piss which probably happened.

She doesn't want to be remembered as "that girl" who got fisted up the butthole like Lara Logan.
Due to the time spent with them and situation,Lindhout will probably admit being raped with penis repeatedly without going into details.Since these were teenagers,their sex drive once the raping started must have been in high gear.Their religion allowed them to rape her without conscience.She was difinitely raped,will she tell how bad and how often,is yet to be seen.

Person to Person is a gay fucking show. agreeing to host that show is like taking a gun, pointing it at your foot and pulling the trigger. that in essence is what Logan is doing to her career.

I almost wonder if Lindhout isn't going back to Somalia to possibly locate and get her daughter out of Somalia. She will probabaly have to pay them, she will do this in secret and raise her daughter in Canada and live a very private life. If she does this, she is the biggest idiot in the world.
what! you think thats a GOOD idea? hell no! One day she will look at it, have a flashback, go temporarily insane, and then put it in the oven at 275 degrees for 45 minutes, or until done. not only will she have legal problems, but her career is finished! its possible she will be institutionalized....
People do not act like that. A child would also give the mother happy hormones and would be a healing influence to the mother. You have a very bleak way of looking at people. That must be a special kind of hell.
NO. Read closely. What she describes here is NOT Stockholm but a mix of Understanding and refusing to give in to negative Emotions.
The process of forgiving her captors began in captivity, as a survival mechanism, explained Lindhout.
When your reality is that youre being abused in a multitude of ways and being starved and literally in chains in the dark there are days that are quite hopeless and in order to survive you have to find ways to let go of the anger and bitterness that have completely taken you over. Because if you just sit with those emotions for too long, I dont know if a person can survive that intact.
Lindhout never sympathized with her captors, but says she did try to be understanding of them because the group of about a dozen teenaged boys were very much a product of their environment.
When you see a 14-year-old boy who has never known what peace looks like for a day in his life, theres part of you as a human being that feels some degree, you can say, compassion for the fact that these boys have known war, famine, violence and death form the day they were born.
But, she adds, they made personal choices about how they treated her and are not innocent of that.
Well...in a situation where food is scarce it could have been her only protein source: Piss and the like. There must have been absolutely horrific things done to her. Things she even could not tell her parents and family. Actually when i read your comments i understand why these ladies do not want to expose too many of the details what was done to them. The Audience - Narrator levels do not match. When you demand full honesty from Logan or Lindhout you have to react in a specific way as an audience...and we sorely lack in that regard i have to admit.
