CNN airs new video of Kenya mall attack, talks to FBI consultant on how to behave if kidnapped

CNN has released new video of the recent terror attack at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya.  The link, including about five minutes of video of the attackers’ behavior, is here

A hostage expert and former FBI agent spoke on CNN today, and advised a hostage to “treat your captors like royalty” and to let them know if you have a medical condition, because if you do, you’re not as “valuable”.  He also said, speak only when spoken to.”  It’s like the attitude of the Somali pirate in the film “Captain Phillips”, who says, “I am the captain now.”
