A video posted by ISIL terrorists in Iraq purports to the show the beheading of an American photojournalist who has been missing since 2012. The group claims the beheading is a message to President Obama to end the American intervention in Iraq.
James Foley is a photojournalist who has worked for several news organizations. According to a website set up in his honor, he went missing while covering the conflict in Syria in 2012.
In the video, they show journalist Steven Joel Soltoff, a journalist who worked for TIME, The National Interest and Media Line. Soltoff seems to have been missing since the middle of last year. He last tweeted on August 3rd, 2013. His Twitter indicates he was in Libya at that time. ISIL claims the Sotloffs life depends on Obamas next decision," specifically if the United States continues attacking their them.
This is the first media story I’ve seen on it.
Then you ain’t been looking at Breaking News.
If Øbama had more than a pair of golf balls we’d be dropping daisy cutters.
Lefty loons will still try to equate Christians with these beasts.
I hope when they start catching ISIS fighters they start collecting their heads to . Taking them off with chainsaws .
Will journalists take a clear stance against the ISIL terrorists either in retaliation or because they finally understand pure evil, or will they back off in the hope that being nice to the barbaric murderers will appease ISIL and protect journalists for now?
Hey Obamaretard—why don’t you go play another round of golf while American citizens are brutally beheaded by Islamo subhumans? This happened because of Obama’s bumbling. He is in way over his head. And my heart goes out to the family of James Foley and that of Steven Soltoff, still captive in their filthy hands.
This did not happen because of 0bama’s bumbling.
He is not in way over his head.
This is exactly what he wants to happen.
Then damn him to the lowest hell. For this, for allowing our country to be invaded by illegals, and for the whole litany of traitorous acts to our country. And for all the deluded fools who voted for him, for whatever reason--the same.
It is being reported on some sites (I use a Brit news search engine).
However, I find this report a little less appalling as the act itself... “US “deeply disturbed” over Afghanistan’s handling of US journalist”
Listen to this song:
>Taking them off with chainsaws .
Too quick. There are much better and prolonged ways to get the message through the thick heads of ISIS members.
ISIS or ISIL, I'm confused.........Still can't find the reported video as advertised in this thread and the link provided above yours........
Ain't sayin it didn't happen but I sure ain't seen the evidence that it did..........
Can ya help a brutha out?
Wow. ISIS is a whole lot meaner to journalists than the Ferguson cops are.
Will the rioters head to Iraq now?
Even if true, and widely publicized, I don’t think it’s going to do much to dissuade journalists in their core beliefs. It’s been a long time since objectivity has been important to them - seeming to be objective, maybe, but not actual objectivity.
