James Wright Foley, a freelance journalist, was beheaded on camera, according to Politico‘s Blake Hounshell.


Foley had been missing since November 22, 2012 when he disappeared in Syria.

Mediaite has chosen not to post or link out the video of Foley’s killing, but in the footage ISIS terrorists force him to read a letterurging Americans to rise up against his “real killer,” “the U.S. government.” In addition, Foley says the U.S. airstrikes against ISIS “hammered the final nail into [his] coffin.”

In 2011, Foley spoke to The Boston Globe about being captured in Libya

10 responses to ISIS Reportedly Beheaded American Journalist On Camera

    ISIS just put a huge target on their backs. Either President Obama will introduce them to his best friends the SEALS or his best friend Mr. Drone.

      Not only America, but the rest of the civilized world will have no tolerance with ISIS anymore. This kind of barbarism will have serious consequences for these cruel and hateful religious zealots.

        I hope you’re right. They need to go down.

    And now for the coin toss. Isis wins the coin toss and has chosen to receive.

      If only it were that easy… One thing the President’s bombing Islamic State has proven they are not unstoppable. At least not on an open battlefield as we’ve seen with the retaking of Mosul Dam, and Kurdish border areas like Sinjar Mountain. They have beat a hasty retreat back to populated areas, hiding behind human shields. But IS or Global Jihad specializes in asymmetrical warfare and these guys are operating in several places at once, suggesting a sophisticated network with a functioning command and control system. It’s like Attila the Hun with GPS.

        Yeah I know, but the reports of these animals burying women and children alive have pissed me off. I think when that line is crossed, they have lost their “human” privilege’s.

          It’s clear that anger is pretty much universal. This latest outrage should leave no doubt. Nonetheless it is encouraging to see the Iraqis getting their house in order and working with the Kurds, for a change. The enemy of my enemy is my friend… and apparetnly there has been some slight improvement in US-Iranian relations.

    Im not going to say its the journalist fault for going to.. Syria ( the one country that would like to see us wiped off the map ) but I am going to say if I were asked to carry a microphone and or camera in that country ? my response would have been ” I would rather own an ice cream parlor in hell ” Resume’s do come in handy at unexpected situations
