A video of journalist Steven J. Sotloff was released a few hours ago showing his final words and his beheading. He is the second American executed so far by ISIS which has been running rampant in Syria and Iraq. His captors insist that his beheading is retribution for the airstrikes carried about by the United States of America.
My condolences go out to Sotloff’s family, especially his mother who pleaded on behalf of her son. Her pleas were obviously given a deaf ear by the psychopathic militants bent on killing. President Obama was even called out on the video showing that the militants do not consider him a formidable leader. Obama drew criticism to himself after going golfing after giving a press conference regarding the beheading of James Foley. Recently, Obama stated that he did not have a strategy against ISIS.
Despite this criticism, we can see clearly that ISIS is scared. They know the airstrikes are causing them damage and are trying everything to get the United States to back down.
