FNC’s website has a write up on Tuesday’s edition of On The Record with Greta Van Susteren which featured an exclusive one hour interview with Steve Centanni, Olaf Wiig, and family members…
“I told them, ‘I need you to tell me about it (Islam),’” Wiig said he told his captors. “ They discussed how the problems of the Muslim world and the west could be solved if the west converted to Islam… then it got sinister,” he said.
“They believed he (Centanni) was CIA, FBI, an informer for the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces)… that he was there as a spy, an American soldier in Iraq,” Wiig said.
“I said, ‘he’s just a journalist… a friend of the Palestinian people,” Wiig said.
“The first thing I said was, ‘this is just great,’” Centanni said, describing the moment the two journalists came to face to face with the gunmen.
“There was no place to get away,” Wiig said. “We were on a narrow street…there was no where to drive.”
