Laura Ling Breaks Her Silence

Laura and Lisa Ling have been on media circuit, making appearances on Oprah, Larry King Live and NPR. After a year of silence, they’re detailing their dual experiences with Laura’s imprisonment in North Korea, and promoting their new book about the five-month ordeal called Somewhere Inside: One Sister’s Captivity in North Korea and the Other Sister’s Fight to Bring Her Home.

On Oprah, Laura, who is now pregnant, said that she gave her North Korean captors the confession they “wanted to hear.” She said it was the most difficult decision.

“I was told if you confess there may be forgiveness and if you’re not frank, if you don’t confess, then the worst could happen,” she said.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but it seem that Laura’s colleague and fellow prisoner Euna Lee has not yet spoken out.
