“I was very afraid. I felt like it would be the last night of my life right there, that these guys were going to kill me. That these guys were going to brutally kill me, I was thinking.
I built up strength to run away because I thought running away was my only hope to get away from a situation like that.”
In an exclusive interview with Fox News‘ Greta Van Susteren, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi revealed details of his terrifying imprisonment in Mexico — including the facts that he once tried a daring escape, and he even attempted suicide because he had sunk into the depths of despair.
Tahmooressi was freed after more than 200 days in captivity — so far, there’s been no indication that the Obama administration had much, if anything, to do with securing his release.
In the Fox News “On the Record” interview, Tahmooressi described having his arms and legs handcuffed to a bed in four-point restraint because he “wasn’t a behaved prisoner.”
“I believe they did it because they were afraid of me, afraid that I might do something again and really end up doing something like successfully killing myself or harming somebody and that they would get in trouble for it by not being able to control the situation,” he said.
