A video from the Arabic TV station Al-Jazeera appears to show captured Americans being interviewed.

One of the captive soldiers said he's from Kansas. Asked why he came to Iraq, he simply replied "I come to fix broke stuff."

Prodded again by the interviewer, he was asked if he came to shoot Iraqis. He replied: "No I come to shoot only if I am shot at."

There's no confirmation that the prisoners interviewed were U.S. troops, or if they were, what unit they were attached to.

Two of the prisoners identified their unit only as the 507th Maintenance; there's a 507th in both the Army and the Air Force.
