ISIS Beheads Abducted American Hostage Photo-Journalist James Wright Foley (VIDEO) (Update: Second U.S. Journalist Steven Joel Sotloff Threatened)

 

SAVAGES BEHEAD AMERICAN JOURNALIST …

ISIS has released a video showing the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley and has threatened the life of another American journalist held hostage if President Barack Obama doesn’t end military operations in Iraq. The savage execution just shows how brutal and without conscience these individuals really are.  SM will not post or link out the violent video of Foley’s killing out of respect to his family, but as Mediaite reports, the video (edited), entitled “Letter to America,” shows ISIS terrorists forcing Foley to read a letter urging Americans to rise up against his “real killer, the U.S. government.”Also, Foley is forced to go on and say, the U.S. airstrikes against ISIS “hammered the final nail into [his] coffin.” James Foley disappeared on November 22, 2012, in northwest Syria, near the border with Turkey when he was reportedly forced into a vehicle by gunmen.

CNN:

A video released by ISIS shows the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley and threatens the life of another American if President Barack Obama doesn’t end military operations in Iraq.

In the video posted Tuesday on YouTube, Foley is seen kneeling next to a man dressed in black. Foley reads a message, presumably scripted by his captors, that his “real killer” is America.

“I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope for freedom to see my family once again,” he can be heard saying in the video.

He is then shown being beheaded.

UPDATE I: ISIS Says They Will MURDER A SECOND JOURNALIST UNLESS OBAMA ACTS.

Islamic State, ISIS, says that another U.S. journalist’s fate depends on Barack Obama.

Islamic State militants claimed in a video on Tuesday to be holding U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff and said his life depended on U.S. President Barack Obama’s next move.

“The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision,” said a masked man in the video posted on social media sites, speaking English with a British accent as he held a prisoner the video named as Steven Sotloff.

UPDATE II: A message from Jim’s mom, Diane Foley from Facebook.

A message from Jim’s mom, Diane Foley:

We have never been prouder of our son Jim. He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people.

We implore the kidnappers to spare the lives of the remaining hostages. Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria or anywhere in the world.

We thank Jim for all the joy he gave us. He was an extraordinary son, brother, journalist and person. Please respect our privacy in the days ahead as we mourn and cherish Jim.

James Foley

James Foley, RIP

UPDATE III: Rest in Peace James Wright Foley.

Foley, 40, grew up in New Hampshire and was originally a teacher, at one point teaching prison inmates in Arizona, before attending the Medill school of journalism at Northwestern University. After graduation, his first assignment was as an embed with the U.S. Army’s 173rd Brigade and 101st Airborne Division in Afghanistan.  Foley had been covering the Syria’s civil war for GlobalPost and Agence France-Presse (AFP) when he was allegedly pulled from the car he was traveling in to meet with a colleague and abducted at gunpoint. According to the Columbia Journalism Review, GlobalPost hired an international security firm for a ground level investigation in Northern Syria and along the Turkish border to locate him.

Foley was also detained and held for 44 days in Libya in 2011.
