American journalist James Wright Foley seen above in orange garb, was beheaded by a representative of ISIS, a faction of the ‘religion of peace’.
From The Daily Mail.
……Graphic footage of the execution appeared in a video titled ‘A message to the US’, in which an apparently coerced Foley, 40, recites a pre-prepared script presumably given to him by his captors which he delivers unflinchingly to the camera.
Kidnapped in Syria on Thanksgiving 2012 while working for the GlobalPost agency, Foley brands the US government his real killers and denounces the country of his birth, while his soon-to-be murderer stands over him dressed in black robes and armed with a small knife and gun.
Wearing an orange jumpsuit, with his head shaven, Foley’s voice is strong, but he often pauses to take deep breaths and appears to struggle at times to swallow as he battles against fear.
The executioner, who speaks directly to the camera in what appears to be a British accent, then blames President Barack Obama for Foley’s death before he brutally beheads the brave reporter in front of the camera.
In a chilling warning at the end of the grisly film, the executioner parades another American journalist, Steven Joel Sotloff, who went missing in August 2013, saying: ‘The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision.’
From Noah Rothman:
The American photojournalist James Wright Foley was working for Agence France Presse when he was captured crossing the Syria-Turkish border in 2012. The American war reporter had previously been held for six weeks by pro-Gaddafi forces in Libya while covering that conflict. Some believed that his capture would be similarly short-lived. Tragically, that would not be the case.
“On November 22, 2012, James Wright Foley, a freelance photo journalist, was taken by an organized gang after departing from an internet café in Binesh, Syria,” the FBI noted in November, 2012. “Foley had employed a translator to help him travel across the Syrian-Turkish border. The translator was also taken, but later released.”
People like Foley and Sotloff know the risks associated with venturing into the Islamofascist cesspool as a journalist instead of part of an armed force. It’s sad, but any journalist with half a brain, no pun intended, would not travel to these areas. There’s already a steady stream of information on social media from indigenous civilians. The war and the daily atrocities committed by Al Qaeda, ISIS, Taliban and the rest of the muzzie trash, is pretty well documented.
If anyone is expecting Obama to do anything or give a shit about the deaths of these journalists, don’t count on it. He’s back on the golf course.
