0:15:060:15:09

Me and a convoy of other drivers

0:15:110:15:14

were delivering some kitchen supplies to a community centre.

0:15:140:15:16

And then some kids... They started throwing rocks at the trucks.

0:15:160:15:20

And then an IED went off up ahead and blew up one of the other trucks.

0:15:200:15:25

And then these guys came out from behind the houses

0:15:260:15:28

and they started shooting everyone right there on the street.

0:15:280:15:31

-Were you shot at?

-I don't know!

0:15:310:15:34

I don't know. I was way in the back of the convoy.

0:15:340:15:36

I guess I got hit in the head by one of the rocks and blacked out.

0:15:360:15:40

That's the last thing I remember.

0:15:400:15:42

And then I woke up here, tied up in a coffin.

0:15:420:15:45

-Who put you there?

-I guess whoever ambushed us.

0:15:450:15:47

0:15:500:15:52

These guys... Iraqis, some insurgents, I don't fucking know...

0:15:520:15:56

They popped out and started shooting everybody right there on the street.

0:15:560:15:59

-I thought you said they didn't shoot at you.

-They didn't, I don't know!

0:15:590:16:02

-They shot them!

-Sir, you're going to have to stop shouting...

0:16:020:16:04

I'm shouting because you're not listening to me!

-So if you know what the hell's going on,

what have you done to get me out of here?

0:29:140:29:16

There's little we can do from Washington.

0:29:160:29:17

So, that's it? I'm just supposed to sit here and rot

0:29:170:29:20

-No.

-Then what?

In Baqubah in the Diyala Province.

0:29:240:29:26

OK. And has contact been made with the kidnappers?

Yeah. The guy told me that he wants five million dollars

-by nine o'clock tonight.

-OK. Or else...?

0:29:300:29:32

Or else he'll take me to Sea World.

-So you'll pay them then, yeah?

-No. That we can't do.

-It's the policy of the United States government...

-The policy of the United States?

-..to not negotiate with terrorists.

No. Don't call the news.

I repeat, do not contact the news.

0:30:550:30:57

It will only complicate things further

0:30:570:30:59

-and threaten your chances of rescue.

-That's bullshit.

0:31:500:31:53

Yeah, it's an old, wooden coffin.

0:31:530:31:54

OK. My guess is that since you're able to get a cell signal...

0:31:540:31:57

-you're no more than a few feet underground.

-I don't know. Maybe.

OK. You have to conserve that battery.

They don't care about anything other than getting the money.

0:41:040:41:07

So pay them, just pay them.

0:41:070:41:09

Trust me, if it was an option, I would do that in a heartbeat.

0:41:090:41:12

How many others have there been?

0:41:150:41:17

-Since I got here?

-Yeah.

0:41:170:41:19

Several. Journalists, contractors, soldiers...

0:41:190:41:22

Dozens have been taken.

0:41:220:41:23

It's one of the only functioning businesses out here.

0:41:230:41:26

How many have you rescued?

0:41:260:41:28

-How many?

-Not many.

0:41:330:41:36

-Tell me their names.

-No.

0:41:360:41:39

-Any of them.

-Who?

0:41:390:41:42

Make me believe they really do matter to you.

0:41:420:41:44

That they really do matter to anyone.

0:41:440:41:47

-Mark White.

-Who's Mark White?

0:41:470:41:50

A kid from New Hampshire. 26 years old. Med student.

0:41:500:41:55

Came over here to help out local doctors.

0:41:550:41:58

-What happened to him?

-Insurgents grabbed him.

0:41:580:42:02

-When?

-About three weeks ago.

0:42:020:42:05

You remember his name.

0:42:090:42:10

0:42:110:42:13

-Home.

0:42:210:42:23

Probably happy to be back at school.

0:42:230:42:25

0:42:490:42:52

I know it's hard, but try to relax.

0:42:520:42:54

The more worked up you are, the more air you're going to use.

0:42:540:43:00

I can't help it.

0:43:000:43:01

It's hard cos I... I have anxiety.

0:43:010:43:05

I take pills for it.

0:43:050:43:07

-Do you have them with you?

-Yeah.

-Good, take them.

0:43:070:43:11

It needs to stay that way.

1:07:011:07:02

It's important that we keep this situation as contained as possible.

1:07:021:07:05

The situation's in a coffin! I think it's pretty contained!

1:07:051:07:09

Help me! Help me! What are you doing right now to help me?!

1:07:091:07:12

I know you're upset. But from what I've been told, they're extremely

1:07:121:07:15

close to getting you out of there.

1:07:151:07:17

So, hopefully it won't be too much longer.

1:07:171:07:19

Thank God. Yeah. Thank God.

1:07:191:07:22

-Now, I'm going to switch on a recorder right now.

-What?

1:07:241:07:28

Just a second.

1:07:281:07:30

CLICK, BEEP

1:07:301:07:32

This is Alan Davenport,

1:07:321:07:34

personnel director for Crestin, Roland and Thomas, Incorporated.

1:07:341:07:38

The date is October 23rd, 2006.

1:07:381:07:41

I am speaking with Paul Conroy.

1:07:411:07:44

Mr Conroy, are you aware that I'm recording this conversation?

1:07:441:07:47

-What?

-Please answer the question.

1:07:471:07:49

I... Shit.

1:07:491:07:51

-Mr Conroy?

-Yeah, yeah, yeah.

1:07:511:07:53

And do I have your permission to do so?

1:07:531:07:55

Why do you need my permission? What's this about?

1:07:551:07:58

-I need you to answer yes or no, please.

-Yes. Yes! All right?

1:07:581:08:01

Thank you. Now, Mr Conroy, when were you hired by CRT?

1:08:011:08:05

I don't know, nine months ago. Around January. What is all this?

1:08:051:08:07

I have your official date of hire as January 4th. Is that correct?

1:08:071:08:12

Who cares? This is fucking crazy.

1:08:121:08:14

-January 4th. Is that correct?

-Yes!

1:08:141:08:17

And during your initial training, before being sent to Iraq,

1:08:171:08:20

you were made aware of the dangers inherent to the position

1:08:201:08:23

for which you were hired.

1:08:231:08:24

You mean when I came down there to Dallas and you guys said that

1:08:241:08:27

all of the trucks would be armoured and have bulletproof glass?

1:08:271:08:30

When you told us that things were safer than ever over here?

1:08:301:08:32

Is that when I was made aware?

1:08:321:08:34

-I need you to answer yes or no, please.

-Yes.

1:08:341:08:38

During that time,

1:08:381:08:39

did you also receive and sign an employment contract with CRT,

1:08:391:08:42

which thoroughly explained company policy

1:08:421:08:45

that pertained to your specific terms of employment?

1:08:451:08:47

Yeah, I signed a bunch of things.

1:08:471:08:49

-Yes or no.

-Yes. I signed the contract. Yes.

1:08:491:08:52

It's our understanding that you were taken hostage in Iraq two hours ago.

1:08:521:08:56

Is that also correct?

1:08:561:08:57

Yes. I think it's a fair assessment of the situation, you fucking dick!

1:08:571:09:00

What is the point of all this?

1:09:001:09:02

Our legal department requires that

1:09:021:09:04

we obtain a sworn affidavit from employees confirming that they

1:09:041:09:07

understand the reasons for their forced separation from the company.

1:09:071:09:10

As of this morning, your employment with CRT was officially terminated.

1:09:101:09:14

Wait, wait, wait... what?

1:09:141:09:17

It was brought to our attention that you were engaging in relations with

1:09:171:09:20

a fellow CRT employee, Pamela Lutti.

1:09:201:09:22

No. No, no, no. Hold on.

1:09:241:09:25

Stipulated in your contract was a fraternization clause,

1:09:251:09:28

in which it was stated quite clearly that any relationship...

1:09:281:09:31

-Stop, stop, stop.

-..be it romantic or sexual in nature

1:09:311:09:33

-deemed inappropriate...

-We were friends.

-..by CRT senior officials

1:09:331:09:37

-as grounds for immediate termination.

-Hold on. OK? We were just friends.

1:09:371:09:41

-Our records indicate differently.

-You records are wrong.

1:09:411:09:43

We're also legally required to inform you that

1:09:431:09:46

because you were technically no longer under

1:09:461:09:48

the employ of CRT at the time of your abduction,

1:09:481:09:51

we cannot be held accountable for any injury that may befall upon you

1:09:511:09:55

after your official date and time of termination.

1:09:551:09:58

Therefore, in your case, that includes this incident

1:09:581:10:01

or any consequences that may result from it.

1:10:011:10:04

What about my insurance money? My family will need that money.

1:10:051:10:09

Given that you were alive up until the time of your termination...

1:10:091:10:13

Don't do this.

1:10:131:10:15

-Do you understand everything...?

-Don't do this!

1:10:151:10:18

Do you understand everything you've been told, Mr Conroy?

1:10:181:10:21

Mr Conroy?

1:10:241:10:25

You're a piece of shit!

1:10:271:10:29

That concludes our interview with Paul Conroy.

1:10:301:10:34

I am now turning off the recorder.

1:10:341:10:36
