Storyline

Journalist Terry Anderson was kidnapped and then held prisoner by Muslim extremists for seven years. On the 20th anniversary of his eventual release, National Geographic investigates his near-death ordeal as a hostage. American Hostage reveals Terry Anderson's harrowing experience from the man himself: "They beat on me. They threatened me.... They would come and sit on my chest and poke guns into my neck and say, 'We kill you, we kill you.'" Hear how the loneliness, boredom and feelings of total helplessness nearly drove Anderson over the edge. And hear from Anderson's fellow hostages, his family--who spent seven long years uncertain of his fate--and the man who risked everything to free him.
