ISIS Beheads American Journalist!140819-james-foley-video-jms-1736_9e7ec13db1999cecbca886433b4da5b2.nbcnews-ux-960-600
Things keep getting worse in Iraq, as New Hampshire native James Foley was executed on camera by ISIS terrorists.
Foley has been missing since 2012.
This barbarism was meant to dissuade the U.S. from intervening in Iraq. My God bless the Foley family during this awful time.
The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) claims to have beheaded an American photojournalist and has threatened the life of another American journalist if President Obama doesn’t stop airstrikes in Iraq.
A graphic video obtained by NBC News purportedly shows James Wright Foley, a freelance reporter for the U.S.-based news service GlobalPost who was kidnapped while reporting from Syria two years ago, reciting threats against America before he is executed by an ISIS militant. The militant heard in the video speaks in English.
Foley was kidnapped at gunpoint near the town of Taftanaz in northern Syria on Thanksgiving Day in 2012. He had not been heard from during his time in captivity. “We’ve heard nothing. Nothing. We last knew that he was abducted on Thanksgiving Day in the Idlib province, but we don’t know who took him or why,” Foley’s father, John, said on TODAY last year.
