A video released by cruel twisted bastards ISIS shows the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley and threatens the life of another American if President Obama doesn’t end military operations in Iraq.
Foley’s mother Diane released a statement Tuesday night on a Facebook page dedicated to the journalist. Here it is in full:
We have never been prouder of our son Jim. He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people.
We implore the kidnappers to spare the lives of the remaining hostages. Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria or anywhere in the world.
We thank Jim for all the joy he gave us. He was an extraordinary son, brother, journalist and person. Please respect our privacy in the days ahead as we mourn and cherish Jim.
In the video posted Tuesday on YouTube, Foley is seen dressed in orange kneeling next to a man dressed in black. Foley reads a message, presumably scripted by his captors, that his “real killer” is America.
