Dear President Bush,
My name is Kimberly Anne Muse. I am writing
this letter not for me but for my father, Kurt Frederick Muse. As you
should know by now, he is a political prisoner in Panama. . ..
Born in the United States and raised in Panama, Kurt Muse grew up with a
deep love for his adopted country. But the crushing regime of General
Manuel Noriega in the late 1980s threatened his, and a nation's,
freedom. A nightmare of murder and unexplained disappearances compelled
Kurt and a few trusted friends to begin a clandestine radio campaign,
urging the people of Panama to rise up for their basic human rights.
Six Minutes to Freedom is
the remarkable tale of Kurt Muse's arrest and harrowing months of
imprisonment; his eyewitness accounts of torture; and the plight of his
family as they fled for their lives. It is also the heart-pounding
account of the only American civilian ever rescued by the elite Delta
Force. Timelier than ever, this is a thrilling and highly personal
narrative about one man's courage and dedication to his beliefs.
