ngrid Betancourt, the French-Colombian politician held hostage for more than six years by guerrillas in the Colombian jungle, told CBC News in an exclusive interview that her captors despised her.
"I was a politician. They hated politicians. I was a person with some education. They had none, so they thought I [had] a privileged social background and they hated me for that," Betancourt told the CBC's Mellissa Fung in an excerpt from an interview that will air on The National on Monday at 9 p.m. ET.

Betancourt is not the sharpest tool in the drawer. Talk to the Air Crew , including Randy Howes, that was also rescued after 5 years of captured existence. Then you will get a very accurate picture of Betancourt.
She is lucky FARC let her live.A more caustic , self interested human being , few of us have seen.Typical leftist.

They hated politicians.
She said that as if that was a bad thing.
