Islamic State militants fighting in Iraq and Syria released a video on Friday which purported to show the beheading of a man identified as British citizen Alan Henning.
Reuters could not immediately verify the footage on YouTube, to which pro-Islamic State Twitter feeds provided links.Reuters could not immediately (or ever) verify the footage on YouTube. Not that it matters.
Foreign Policy is running with this 'news'
British officials couldn't immediately verify the authenticity of the video, which circulated on social media
British officials couldn't verify the authenticity of the video. Not that it matters.
Henning, a taxi driver from Salford, England, was kidnapped in Syria in December while delivering aid to citizens in the war-ravaged country.
Henning. A taxi driver. Yah, sure.
Following the Islamic State's previous pattern, at the end of the video a masked killer shows the next hostage that the group promises to execute if the bombing campaign doesn't stop. That man is identified in the video as Peter Kassig, an American aid worker.Like a preview for the next episode? Unless the network just cancels the rest of the season? Right?
Foreign Policy has been aware that Kassig was being held by the Islamic State but didn't reveal his name at the request of family members and U.S. officials, who have said that identifying him could encourage the Islamic State to kidnap other Americans and endanger Kassig's safety. The terrorist group has eventually beheaded all of the hostages it shows in the videos.
There is one more American believed to be held by the militant group, a 26-year-old woman who is an aid worker. Her death would mark a pivotal moment in the grim saga of Islamic State hostages because the group hasn't executed a Western woman on film -- though it has recorded beheadings of local women. Foreign Policy isn't releasing the hostage's name.A woman! That will be the straw that breaks the camel's back!
From this article
The video was released Friday night. It mirrored other beheading videos shot by the Islamic State group, which now holds territory along the border of Syria and Iraq.Yup. Same. Same. Which means there is no proof of an actual beheading taking place.
The video then shows the executioner, standing behind Henning, saw quickly at his throat with a knife as the video fades to black. The next shot is a left-to-right pan of Henning’s lifeless body, with his severed head placed on top of his back.
It's just implied. You are supposed to assume it happened. Whatever, however you wish to fool yourself ?
Keep the facts below in mind when you take in the above nonsense and believe it to be true
FBI director: We know the Americans fighting in Syria with ISIS
That's right the director of the FBI is telling you- from his lips to your ears- that the FBI is exactly aware of the identity of Americans that are fighting alongside ISIS to destabilize Syria and kill Syrians.
Comey says he is aware of about "a dozen or so" Americans who have joined ISIS, but can't discount there may be more. Of the ones he knows, he says he will do everything in his power to monitor them should they return to the U.S.Cleary he knows who the Americans are fighting alongside ISIS because he is going to monitor each and every one of them when they return to the US. He is going to keep track of them!
But, he isn't going to arrest them. He isn't going to incarcerate them. He didn't say that.
I guess he has to know where they live when they return from mission, accomplished. So, US taxpayers can provide wages, pensions & medical care for them afterwards.
"Ultimately, an American citizen, unless their passport is revoked, is entitled to come back," he tells Pelley. "So someone who has fought with ISIL, with an American passport, wants to come back, we will track them very carefully."Support the troops
Update: Hostage's killing underscores need to destroy ISIS militants: Cameron
First- The tape like all were unverified the first one was verified fake
Second- the tapes have never shown any beheading and this one is absolutely no different.
Third- Who benefits? Why of course those who benefit and profit from war!
Obviously, the war making nations that collectively call themselves NATO: the global tyrant army. This includes Israel. The bankers. The military industrial complex. Big multinationals conglomerates
