In 2012, freelance journalist James Wright Foley was kidnapped in Syria. Now, it appears the monsters who make up ISIS, or the Islamic State, as they prefer to be known, have brutally murdered him by cutting off his head. Moreover, they recorded the bloody event on video and posted it to You Tube.
According to reports, however, the five minute video, titled “A Message to America,” has been removed.
According to Buzzfeed:
“A Message To America,” a video uploaded Tuesday to YouTube, begins with a clip of President Obama announcing his recent authorization of targeted airstrikes and a humanitarian operation in Iraq. Then, around the two minute mark, a man believed to be James Wright Foley, 40, delivers a statement:
“I call on my friends, family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers: the U.S. government,” he says, before specifically addressing his brother John, a member of the U.S. Air Force. (A full transcript of his last words was posted online by the blogger Brown Moses and can be found here.)
Two minutes and 20 seconds later, the man is beheaded. The monster who cut his head off says “any attempt by you, Obama, to deny the Muslims their rights of living in safety under the Islamic caliphate will result in the bloodshed of your people.”

Do not watch the video. Honor James Foley's memory. He was a good damn reporter. The world is less good without him.

Earlier today, we reported that ISIS monsters murdered a woman by splitting her in two with cars. They’ve also reportedly buried people alive, cut a young boy in half and beheaded Christian children in Mosul. Their leader has reportedly given them permission to eat babies.
Let’s face it — this bunch is evil personified. There was a time when American leaders would move heaven and earth to stop monsters like this. It seems, however, those days are gone. Worse yet, low-information liberals have actually protested efforts to protect Iraqis from them.
Heaven help us.
Update: According to The Blaze, the administration has responded.
“If genuine, we are appalled by the brutal murder of an innocent American journalist and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friends,” said National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden. “We will provide more information when it is available.”
