Outraged that he was an innocent civilian prisoner who must have been filled with dread for weeks with the knowledge that he faced beheading and that he had to watch a colleague died an awful death/ And outraged, I hope, because we are human His poor mother I hope some day they get the killers

    I agree 100% that their acts are both inhumane and evil, I’m just thinking of their other victims who have also been murdered in the same manner but do not receive the same level of coverage but I presume we relate more to those who are similar to us ………

    My dision not to watch these videos has nothing to do with mainstream media, the very fact that the internet exists cancels out any control you feel it has over everyone’s lives. It’s not hard for anyone who really wants to to find the videos online. But my point is, by doing so, you’re only fueling the terrorists egos.

    In order to make a choice to not watch a video, we have to be sure the video exists. So many people saying RIP, which is of course warranted if there is proof, but until there is proof we should ignore this article. This video (if it exists) just reeks of getting the general public on board for another war. Pulling at our heart strings so the US can invade yet again to kill terrorists they have funded. They want Assad out of Syria too. Don’t be fooled by the false display of caring from the White House.

    John the reason truth seekers want to see these videos and other connected evidence is so tbat we can decern whether the stoey was BOGUS.

    James Foleys case was complete BOGUS and even the main stream media caved in on that video…the smoking gun was the UK police threatening to criminalise those that downloaded it.

    BTW Foleys sister is a complete FAKE, she also acted in Sandy Hook.

I agree that there are plenty of questionable sources which barely pass as news, but I don’t believe that every single news source in the world is working in unison to blind us with nothing but misinformation. Sometimes they do actually report what has happened.

    This guy was undoubtedly in their custody. Considering the videos I’ve watched (none of which were shown by mainstream media and only a fraction of which were even reported on) of people being shot, beheaded and buried alive by these guys if he is dead it’s fairly safe to assume he was beheaded or met some equally grizzily fate. Your attitude to mainstream media, however warrented it might be, is blinding you to the obvious.

    Frank the fact that I know somebody that lost a child in Sandy Hook proves how wrong and twisted you are and it really bothers me to hear you call it a false flag. You think everything is a false flag, nearly every single terror attack you have some mad theory mainly with numbers adding up to 7. Why can’t you accept there is people out there with hate towards the west and want to do damage. Surely if the IRA can carry out terror attacks abroad so can these extremist. Right?

    We’re approaching a world war people.. In fact its already started. The argument will have to move from who started it to which side we are on.. Watching the news is loke watching a pathe newsreel from the past… The time for who started it should be replaced by how do we win and unlike the Nazis in Ww2 its impossible to say (for example invade europe) how you win.

    All i know that IS is the biggest threat to our cosy way of life.. What if IS takes power in a country with nuclear weapons? Russia is positioning itself in one corner .. Dangerous times folks but like every world war we will need russia and its allies before the end… The price might be the good people of east ukraine.. Make no mistake though the enemy is islamic ultra fundamentalists.. God help us.

    Don’t be a hypocrite Glen you have often resorting to insults, do you not remember calling a guy a weasel only a few days ago. Plus this is not a conspiracy site angry replies are expected with the crap you post, if I went on infowars forums and start ranting about how great America is it wouldn’t take long for the insults to come.

You think you’re on some sort of mission to discover and spread to the truth, when in fact, you my good man, are the gullible one. Adiós.

    I’ve seen videos of literally hundreds of people executed by IS. That says more to me then what the mainstream media says. Whatever else you might say they rarely report hostages dead if they’re not. For someone that has such contempt for the mainstream media you place a lot of stock in what they have to say, or not say.

    Glen. Even if you got to see the video how would you know it’s not being faked with special effects on scene or in post production? You’re so adamant that the video is the ultimate truth but it’s one of the most easily faked mediums so is no proof at all.

    What’s your underlying contention here though? That this is fake and he hasn’t been killed just because you haven’t gotten to personally view the video?

    Everybody is completely missing Glens point. He is just saying that proof should provided. Considering what governments are willing to do to achieve their goals, for example operation Northwoods where the US government proposed committing acts of terror including bombings on their own city’s and to make it look like the Cubans… http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Northwoods … It is not unreasonable to say that proof should be provided. I’m not saying they have any hand in this but the only real source to go on is what the governments involved in these conflicts tell us and if they’re willing to do such things as operation Northwoods then I would want to be provided with proof in whatever they say especially when it comes to war. Propaganda has always existed and to assume it doesn’t exist now is foolish and to not question everything is where the real stupidity lies.

    There’s plenty of evidence but for some reason you’re discounting it all. Look at all the other videos IS have posted online. They are beheading people left right and center but in this case you need proof from the mainstream media and nothing else will do? If the guy is dead, and I doubt they’d be reporting he was if he wasn’t, then all the evidence suggests he was beheaded (or murdered in some other horrible way). Imagine a world where the only acceptable proof is a video, I think you’ll find it doesn’t work that way. You keep saying people should be asking questions? You’re kinda right except instead of asking the important questions you’re focusing on one stupid pointless question.
