ISIS Beheads Journalist, Threatens to Kill Miami Reporter if Obama Continues Attacks

Steven Sotloff, a UCF graduate, appears to have been taken hostage by the terrorist group ISIS.
Terrorists have just released a video that appears to show them beheading missing American journalist James Foley.

The video, apparently released by insurgent group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), also shows a man described as local freelance reporter Steven Sotloff.

Sotloff is a University of Central Florida alumnus who grew up in Miami. In the video, his hands are cuffed behind his back and he's dressed in a bright-orange jumpsuit. A man with a knife threatens to kill him unless President Barack Obama calls off American airstrikes against ISIS.

On his Twitter profile, Sotloff describes himself as a "stand-up philosopher from Miami" who has worked for Time and other media outlets.

The profile suggests he has been missing for as long as a year. His last tweet was August 3, 2013. His profile also suggests he was in Libya at that time.

When New Times phoned a Pinecrest residence registered to Sotloff's father, Arthur, a man answered and said, "I really can't talk to you about anything" and hung up. Further calls were not returned.

In the extremely graphic video posted on YouTube this afternoon, a man dressed in black bemoans the American air assault against ISIS. Then he appears to cut Foley's throat. The next image appears to be of Foley's severed head.

The ISIS member then appears onscreen holding Sotloff and threatening to execute him as well.

"The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision," the man says.

What could possibly be so interesting in Iraq rightnow that it's worth even traveling over there, much less risking your life for?!??? Pay an arab that lives there instead for the damn news story!

This is what we get for helping out Iraq.....Should make this REAL simple for them-No foreign aid to ANY Middle East Country until they post a video beheading the guy beheading Americans in this video.

ISIS is kicking the U$A's ass!


Once again, America LOSES yet another war against a far smaller, weaker and poorer nation / society.

I'm calling bullshit on this. If it was real, the "full version" (on liveleak.com) would show the entire thing.

....................otherwise the average american poor people are on schedule to kill themselves with DIABETES and that will certainly solve the social security trust fund deficiency in the future - no terrorist organization can do anymore damage here unless they poison the water supply (BUT the ALL water is already being used up and wasted anyway)


why do you think McDs and KFCs and Burger Kings are on every MLK BLVD ? white intelligencia has calculated it can wipe-out an entire race with sugar-water and empty calories (have you eve seen how FAT more and more BLACK kids get these dayz (a sure sign things are "working"))


ever see a BLACK person at WHOLE FOODS FRESH MARKET ?

...............yes, the average american people are losing, as they will ultimately pay,  BUT american CAPITALISTS are,  cha-ching,  piling on the profits !


remember DADDY WARBUCKs in ANNIE ? same thing here - for O I L


meanwhile we get to totally "disrupt" SYRIA, LEBANON, EGYPT, IRAQ and IRAN


as long as SAUDI ARABIA and QATATR stay happy we will be O K

@DonkeyHotay @frankd4


........only AFTER the company collapses,  like XEROX,  and typically that new BLACK CEO is a woman - so that checks off TWO items at once


actually A BARRY RAND was someone who could have saved XEROX long before the crash - but he is BLACK

not for much longer though - we got mexicans and other latinos and hispanics coming in who will work for less and don't march or stike or bust things up when they get screwed


BLACKs labor is an economic redundantcy - we can replace it now
