Members of the U.S. Navy and Marines who had been held by Iraq as P.O.W.'s in the Persian Gulf war spoke to reporters in Bethesda Naval Medical Center. They described their experiences and emotions surrounding their captivity. Capt. Sanborn said his captivity was “terrifying,” and said life as a P.O.W. in Iraq consisted of solitary confinement, interrogations, and abuse at the hands of Iraqi soldiers. Lt. Zaun, who had denigrated the West in a widely shown videotape taken by his captors during his confinement, said he feared his remarks, which had been forced upon him by his captors, would be used as propaganda for Saddam Hussein among Arab audiences. close
