Terrorist group ISIS released a second video of yet another beheading of an American journalist. The victim Steven Sotloff was delivered as a ‘second message to America’. The video posted Tuesday online, Sotloff says—that he is “paying the price” for U.S. military intervention.
The U.S intelligence community confirmed the authenticity of the video. The killing of Sotloff came after the threat was made last month by ISIS during the videotaped beheading of another American journalist James Foley. The latest video made yet another threat on a life.
It is believed that ISIS is still holding a ‘small number” of Americans hostage, according to a U.S official.
The intelligence community is also analyzing the footage, trying to answer key questions, such as: When was it shot? Where was it shot? Is the killer in the recent video the same one in the James Foley video?
At this time not much is known, but ISIS must be stopped. President Obama has his work cut out for him. He must develop a strategy and act now. I’m sure we’ll be hearing from him soon…
