Formerly Lara Tur. Author of Caged: The True Story of Abuse, Betrayal, and GTMO. Six years after my daughters and I were exiled from Guantanamo Bay, I’m revealing my emotional decades-long story of fear, deceit, and abuse that ends with the mysterious death of my husband. I’ve recently retired from working in a system that was meant to protect me and only failed. After a lifetime of being silenced, I’m sharing my experience and regaining my voice in hopes of showing others trapped in the same ordeal that they are not alone, and to spur action amongst those in a place of power to combat domestic violence.
