H/T to Bare Naked Islam
Interesting how Foley’s statement seems rehearsed and sincerely stated. Also frightening. As you might have seen in a earlier post, Foley was actively supporting the “Free Syrian Army”… the same guys McCain wanted to arm. Obama, to his credit, did not support them. To his immense discredit he did nothing to halt the growth and spread of ISIS. He has denounced this act of barbarism but has done nothing else.
The current Iraq bombing has already suffered mission creep. What does the security of the Mosul Dam have to do with protecting Americans in Erbil? I doubt that the dam can be secured long-term without air support…will Obama continue? Remember, that the airstrikes are the excuse for this beheading.
We need to stop with the pin pricks. They are like trying to destroy a hornet nest with a fly swatter. Obama has now swatted a few hornets and they are angry. We need to destroy ISIS’ ability to do anything and embargo what is currently the “Islamic state”. Carpet bombing by B-52’s would be a good start. A military partition would be another. Destroy them and let the tribes fight for the remains. Let the IS be a failed state and protect the rest of the world from the bad guys that might be living there.
The following article includes the beheading of Foley and some illustrations of other “nice” things done by these Islamist dogs.
JAMES FOLEY, American photojournalist, has been beheaded by the Islamic State (ISIS) savages
A video released by ISIS shows the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley (photos below) and threatens the life of another American if President Barack Obama doesn’t end military operations in Iraq. BNI readers have seen countless savage beheading videos by ISIS. To see for yourself, click HERE (WARNING: Graphic)
CNN In the video posted Tuesday on YouTube, Foley is seen kneeling next to a man dressed in black. He reads a message, presumably scripted by his captors, that his “real killer” is America. “I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope for freedom to see my family once again,” Foley can be heard saying in the video. He is then shown being beheaded. The National Security Council is aware of the video.
“The intelligence community is working as quickly as possible to determine its authenticity. 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. We will provide more information when it is available,” NSC spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said.
The beheader seems to have a British accent. WARNING: Graphic
