Greta van Susteren interviewed FOX reporter Steve Centanni and cameraman Olaf Wiig earlier tonight. Centanni’s brother and Wiig’s wife also got airtime. The captors believed Centanni was a spy for Israel or the CIA. Wiig said they discussed killing Centanni because he was an American. The main motivation of the kidnappers from the start, Wiig said, was making a video. Centanni/Wiig were asked to write scripts for the video. Wiig noted that the captors heatedly discussed kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. Centanni added that the captors asked them to write a letter to Bush defending Islam, calling on the President to free the Gitmo muslims, and demanding that he not use the term “Islamic fascists.” Centanni: “Yeah, they were very angry about that.”
