Staged Foley, Sotloff Beheading Videos ‘Not Evidence’, US Determined to Wage War of Fear on Its Own People

21WIRE
SPECIAL REPORT

To those who were paying attention, the ‘beheading’ videos of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff do not actually show anyone being beheaded, but that hasn’t stopped the entire US government machine from shifting into full-blown overseas war mode this week.

Much has been made of these two videos, yet, both are nothing more than crudely constructed propaganda videos, designed to start a new war at home, and abroad.

The beheading videos have been accompanied by hundreds of hours of ISIS footage and reports of ISIS violence in Iraq and Syria. Predictably, the public reaction is outrage and fear. With the help of US and European multinational-owned TV networks, the videos have triggered an artificial tidal wave of national hysteria, and for the first time in history, America has a declaration of war based on two YouTube videos created and uploaded by persons unknown.

As President Obama unveils his comprehensive strategy this week for dealing with ISIS, Vice President Joe Biden was so incensed by the two videos that he has already committed Americans to follow the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) “to the gates of hell… because hell is where they reside.” Yes, that’s right, Biden wants to drag the US to hell and back to get ISIS.

Is is possible that both these video could be depicting brutal murders? Yes, of course it’s possible, but there are still many unanswered questions which should be answered.

Perfect PR

For both ISIS and the Pentagon, the PR campaign has been nothing short of masterful.

This latest ISIS crisis has been flawless in terms of media execution and timing, as the anniversary of Sept. 11th approaches again and as other major global stories have expended themselves.

To be sure, the PR explosion gave ISIS an unbelievably inflated media presence, but also benefited the US military industrial complex by making the global terrorism more relevant than ever before. A new CNN Poll revealed that this week 50% of previously war-wary Americans are now ready to go to war, and an incredible 71% of Americans believe that “ISIS is now active inside the US”, even though it not true and highly unlikely.

There has never been a better example of what six weeks of wall-to-wall media coverage can achieve in terms of transforming public opinion. In this case, the objective is a green light to reignite the War on Terror and to rebrand Washington’s L’enfant terrible from al Qaeda to ISIS.

Beyond the media Blitzkrieg however, all we really have are two edited propaganda videos which were uploaded to YouTube by an unknown individual(s). Together, the US gov’t and the US corporate media have done about 95% of the job of propelling these propaganda videos across all major global media platforms and giving ISIS possibly its biggest PR bump since it went public.

CSI: How Can Doctored Digital Videos Be Considered ‘Evidence’ ?

If these two cases were murder cases in any police department in the world, both would be still be open cases. In these cases, all we have is: no body, no way to determine any time of death, no way to determine cause of death, no actual deaths depicted on camera, no murder weapon, no way to determine who the murderer might be (assuming murders took place), and no way to determine location of the murder. Nothing at all. Yes, when you strip all the politics and sensationalism away, it’s still an open case.

On top of this, various aspects of the videos were in fact been staged (read more below).

In addition, we’ll prove that these videos are heavily edited and contain separate audio tracks, then staying in the realm of facts and forensics – there is no way to prove who the Jihadist in the video is, or even if ISIS created these videos.

The Steven Sotloff “beheading” video is a curious production which deserves some analysis. The mainstream media and political war hawks have been unable to provide any intelligent analysis.

Foley Video Analysis

As mentioned earlier, the James Foley video does not actually show a beheading. It shows a masked Jihadist with a small pen knife beginning to carry out what appears to be a throat slash, but the video inconveniently cuts to a still photo, a gruesome image to be sure, allegedly depicting Foley’s head resting on his corpse.

Again, as it’s a digital video, there’s absolutely no way to confirm exactly what we are seeing, leaving the audience to assume that what the video’s creator has assembled for his audience is exactly what has transpired. To date, no mainstream broadcast outlet or politician has bothered to question the surreal productions, or their narratives. Both US and UK governments seem 100% satisfied with the “authenticity” of the videos from day one. What exactly authenticity means in the context of heavily edited ISIS propaganda productions is difficult to determine, but like all things terror, the public are told to take the govt’s word for it, and question nothing.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide a video, or even a link in this article because of gov’t threats to arrest anyone watching the Foley video. It is still available online though. So concerned are gov’t authorities that no one views or analyses the James Foley video, that UK officials have deemed watching the Foley video as a ‘terrorist offense’. The Guardian reported, “Scotland Yard warned the public that viewing, downloading or disseminating the video within the UK might constitute a criminal offence under terrorism legislation”.

Not surprisingly, according to forensic analysis, experts have already admitted that the James Foley ‘beheading’ video was in fact staged. Thats about as far as the establishment will go in exposing the video.

Critics have also flagged up Foley very interesting resume. In 2009, just three years before his capture in Syria, Foley worked for CIA front organization USAID, apparently working on ‘development projects’ in Baghdad. In 2011, he “moved to Libya” where he was promptly kidnapped by NATO-backed Islamist fighters and held for over a month.

Then in 2012, Foley landed a gig with an unusual Boston-based, online media outlet called GlobalPost. With no visible advertising and a membership subscription base in the hundreds, somehow GlobalPost manages to pay for up to 65 foreign correspondents, sending their reporters as eyes and ears on the ground in hot spots like Syria. The answer to this puzzle comes in the form of a handful of elite US foundation, quietly injecting millions of dollars into their GlobalPost operation. They include the Ford Foundation, the Kaiser Family Foundation, the Open Hands Initiative, The Henry Luce Foundation, The Bake Family Trust, The Correspondents Fund and the Galloway Family Foundation.

So what does this all mean? We don’t know, but it seems that no one else is even asking.

Sotloff Video Anomalies

The James Foley video and the Steven Sotloff video have different landscape backgrounds, indicating that these were filmed in different locations.

Israeli-American journalist, Steven Sotloff’s video is shot with at least two cameras, with camera one supplying a close-up of Steven, and camera two providing a pull-back shot at a 45º angle towards Sotloff’s lefthand side. Camera two gives us some idea of camera one’s position – at least 10 feet in front of Sotloff (see video below).

Both the Foley and the Sotloff videos suggest that the alleged victims’ monologues were memorized, or even delivered ad lib. Both are possibilities. Sotloff’s opening 10 minute diatribe is clearly reciting from a script, however camera two’s position would suggest that there  were no cue cards or a teleprompter close enough to read. Weather conditions show heavy winds, so no flip pads or cue cards.

So let us assume that Sotloff memorized his 10 minute monologue, and on top of that, he delivered it passionately, as if in character. To be sure, his performance was over-the-top. If he was speaking against his will then you’d expect maybe a more dry delivery, but Sotloff’s monologue is anything but dry and dispassionate. It was a challenging 5 star performance that could not have been pulled off by anyone, which makes it seem all the more stranger.

Sotloff: Two different audio tracks

You can hear the wind in Sotlff’s audio, indicating that this was filmed live on site. When Sotloff finishes, and theatrical character, ‘Jihadi John’ jumps in to deliver his speaking part, you can tell right away that the terrorist actor’s voice is edited in from an entirely different audio recording, clearly recorded at a different time. There is no wind and the recording quality is noticeably different.

As with the James Foley video, Jihadi John is wielding a rather tiny knife over Sotloff, not quite enough to pull off a beheading.

Watch this partial clip of the Sotloff video and notice some of details we’ve noted:


US authorities claim to have seen the entire Sotloff ‘beheading’ video, although no one else has, including the media. The public are meant in this case, to accept the gov’t line that it was a beheading video. When considering the Foley video, which was proudly paraded around US media and used as a political springboard by politicians wanting to look tough, we must stress again that the Foley video did not show James Foley being beheaded. Instead is was a heavily edited piece which may or may not be what everyone says it is.

We’ve yet to see Sotloff being beheaded because apparently, it seems like ISIS only provided one copy of video to a CIA and Pentagon-linked media arm called SITE (their logo is embossed on the upper righthand corner of the video) and the public are not allowed to see it. We don’t know if that video depicts a beheading or if it’s just an edited mash-up like the Foley video.

Part of the ISIS PR magic is because the Islamic terror outfit seems to have a media super pipeline in SITE. In the past, SITE has managed to gain exclusivity to all high-profile al Qaeda, al Shabaab, Boko Haram, and other popular terrorists brands. Now they are trafficking in ‘ISIS’ videos.


FOLEY VID: SITE are managing terror media for western audiences.

SITE
SOTLOFF VID: SITE have the inside track on a Sotloff video that no one else has even seen.

SITE co-founder, Rita Katz, is Israeli and committed Zionist, with obvious close ties to Mossad, which makes the whole operation even more interesting. SITE is an offshoot of the notorious Intel Center. Intel Center also has the scoop on Taliban imagery of captured Bowe Bergdahl. The case for CIA management of the Bergdahl Affair is also strengthened by the role of ‘Intel Center’ in managing the Bergdhal’s PR campaign.

Intel Center is staffed by ex-Pentagon specialists, and just like their sister organization, SITE, they have somehow  enjoyed a monopoly on all high profile ‘terror videos’, including many of the dubious exclusives of terror celebrities like Osama bin Laden, Ayman Al-Zawahri and Adam Gadahn (aka Adam Pearlman, the notorious Jewish-American ‘al Qaeda’ leader, and the grandson of the former head of the ADL) in videos released to the American public since 2001.

Both SITE and Intel Center have been repeatedly accused of distributing completely fake al Qaeda videos at what can only be described as politically convenient times, in order to manipulate public opinion, particularly American opinion.

Intel Center’s logo has been embossed on a number of the major photo releases for Bowe Bergdahl (see image below).


When you see terror sock puppets like Ayman al-Zawahri, the alleged leader of Al Qaeda, praise the Syrian fighters by referring to them as “The Lions of the Levant,” in messages released exclusively via a known CIA media dissemination outlets like SITE, or INTEL CENTER, then readers should be suspicious of why it’s been released and what political effect it is designed to have.

Previously, IntelCenter was exposed by journalist Neal Krawetz for inserting their own logo on Al-Qaeda videos at the same time the so called ‘Al-Qaeda’ Arabic media logo was inserted in the same videos. That’s right, same video layer, which means Intel Center created the original terror video.

At least one of the most famous bin Laden videos has been roundly proven as a fake, but this never stopped Washington from using it as a media feature to help hype DHS Threat Alerts and maintain a steady flow of funding for the global War on Terror.

Preparing for a New War

It was a well orchestrated media push by the West to market the alleged ISIS beheadings. For Washington and its media arms, this wasn’t without a specific objective. Alongside Foley and Sotloff has been continuous media messaging and the relentless talking-up about seemingly inevitable US air strikes… in Syria.

In a logical world, if the real objective was to eliminate ISIS, then you would expect that Washington would want to sit down with both the Syria and Iraqi govt’s in order to form a strategy to flush out and destroy the ISIS brigades. With that level of coordination, the terror group could be wiped out in a matter of weeks, but that cannot happen because the US is playing a double agenda.

Part One of that agenda is over the table with US promising  policy to “degrade ISIS”, while the second part is under the table – a continuation of its long-running project of driving a bloody civil war inside Syria by supporting, funding and arming rebels fighters to achieve regime change in Syria.

The US will certainly use any air strikes in Syria to hit key Syrian military targets – carried out under a complete media blackout around ‘wrong targets’, and also use airstrikes to provide air cover for the FSA Syrian rebels which it has been funding and arming since 2012.

In the end, this is where all ‘terror videos’ eventually lead to.

    I formed the firm opinion that the videos were staged in order to swing public opinion toward war almost straight away. What I have not worked out yet is why this and other false flags are so full of holes it’s as if it is been made to look almost too obvious to those who look past msm. It’s as if public unrest and rebellion is a desired result that is part of a grand master plan.

    • farang

      Over at maxkeiser.com, is a very interesting article called “your parents really F you up” about a guy that now sells movie prop weaponry.

      oddly, the entire article is not about his current profession, but the last two paragraphs caught my eye: he was holding a knife with small holes fake blood could squirt through, to make a “cut” look real.

      He was in Great Britain.

    • Quazar

      “They” might be sorting out those who oppose the war business and corrpution and then at some point in time try to take those out. All at once.
      Scanning social media and the internet. Trying to find their enemies.

  • Froi Vincenton

    LMAO! It’s amazing how brain-damaged conspiracy theorists try to downplay and ignore ISIS existential threat not only to US but to Russia and non-Muslims as well using their stupid conspiracy theories.

    But granting arguendo that the beheading did not take place, are you saying the genocide of Yazidis and christians did not take place as well as that Vice’s reports were all staged? LOL! You stupid conspiracy theorists need to go to Iraq so you get beheaded as well.

    I’d rather believe ISIS than a group of brain-damaged conspiracy theorists who know nothing but concoct and publicize stupid, baseless stories.

    Or, are you so disappointed that USA’s intervention would prevent ISIS from killing more Yazidis, Christians and non-Muslims?

    • Eileen Kuch

      ISIS = Israeli Secret Intelligence Syndicate. This is current ME History 101, doofus; time for your first lesson.

      • Froi Vincenton

        You are either a fanatic Muslim who’s trying to deceive people or a brain-damaged leftist to say that. LOL!

        • Eileen Kuch

          No, I’m a CHRISTIAN, who follows the teachings of JESUS CHRIST.

          • Christopher Deaves

            DO WHAT !!!!!, now you’ve just blown any credibility you had right outta the ballpark Eileen, get rid of religion and all the freaking sky pilots and it would solve 90% of the Worlds ills.

          • Eileen Kuch

            A nation needs a moral compass, Christopher, to survive and thrive. Without it, there’s only anarchy and chaos. I blew nothing away. Even the ancient pagans of Egypt, Greece, and Rome had a moral compass at their beginnings; and, when they lost that, their Empires fell. It’s a sense of knowing right from wrong, and good from evil. Christianity’s not the only religion that gave people the sense of right from wrong; people had a moral compass with which to follow, if they so chose.
            There are several religions in the world; Christianity is only one. What’s necessary to solve the world’s problems is for everyone (and this includes nations) to respect everyone else; that’s the key; because, without it, you have what you have now – hatred, chaos, and violence,

          • Christopher Deaves

            Since when has religion provided a “moral compass” ? most of those who plant their arses on church pews have morals lower than an ally cat, they just believe that by attending they will be forgiven (aaaah) perhaps they should take care that they have nothing to be forgiven for.
            You had it right with “What’s necessary to solve the world’s problems is for everyone (and this includes nations) to respect everyone else; that’s the key; because, without it, you have what you have now – hatred, chaos, and violence” in that nowhere in that paragraph does it mention religion, but it does mention RESPECT. TC.

      • RiverMikeRat

        I can believe that.

    • Billy Carlin

      Oh Dear! Pot and Kettle come to mind. They may or not have a few lunatics – they missed out sending you obviously – running around killing people in Iraq/Syria then again they LIE about everything else with all of their FALSE FLAGS etc and since these same psychopaths control the media who knows what to believe. All we know is that every one of their FALSE FLAGS has been exposed as LIES so far including these FAKE beheading HOAX’s exposed as DRIVEL at the links shown here:

      http://paisleyexpressions.blogspot.co.uk/

      The US Government like the UK and Israeli etc governments could not give a toss about their own citizens never mind people in any other country. You will also be claiming that Muslims did 9/11 then THICKO even though the videos by Dr Judy Wood over on the right hand side of the same link above PROVES different – it was the US Government “caring” about their own citizens that did it – same goes for the UK Government on 7/7.

      • Froi Vincenton

        You are indeed the brain-dead moron I was talking about.

        Are you saying the massacre of Christians and Yazidis by ISIS was also staged, stupid?

        • Billy Carlin

          Yes and Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and was killing babies in their incubators etc all PROVED to be the lies of the US and UK governments, Yes and Bin Laden was killed by Obama when he in FACT died of Marfan Syndrome in 2001, Yes and Assad killed all of his own people with chemical weapons when it has been PROVED that it was the “terrorists” who were supplied by and controlled by the US and UK etc governments that did it etc, etc, etc.

          If our Elite controlled TV and Newspapers and governments and you say that ISIS killed all of these people then it must be true then eh? Only the brain dead believe any of these corrupt crooks.

          • Froi Vincenton

            That is exactly the same mentality James Foley had when he decided to go to Syria to support the Syrian rebels. He thought the Islamic Jihadists were just friendly neighbors and no threat to infidels and non-Muslims. Well, he got what he deserved.

            With the the brain-dead blogger’s stupid mentality, he would be gladly killed by the Jihadists. I hope he gets killed or beheaded sooner or later for his stupidity.

            By the way, Al Jazeera retracted its story that the beheading of Foley and the other American journo was staged.

            Now answer me, you MORON: Did ISIS also stage the massacre and genocide of hundreds of thousands of Christians and Yazidis in Iraq?

            Let’s assume you’re right that the beheading was staged, now are you telling me ISIS also staged the genocide of Yazidis and Christians, YOU MORON?

          • Billy Carlin

            Dear! Dear! James Foley works for the CIA – the Syrian rebels are funded and trained by the US, UK and Israel just like ALL of the “Islamic terrorists” – they created ISIS because everyone even the most brain dead were becoming aware that Al Qaeda were run and funded by us – so what if Al Jazeera retracted it’s story it has not been retracted by the experts here in the UK and elsewhere that exposed it as fake or the UK media etc that reported this FACT.

            Did these ISIS “terrorists” get their nice new white trainers and nice new pick up trucks etc all covered in the blood of these “hundreds of thousands of Christians and Yazidis”? Where is the pictures of these hundreds of thousand victims and documented proof of their names etc? How do ISIS have time to murder anyone when they are too busy running the oil fields that they have stolen, too busy in their sales and marketing department finding and selling customers for this stolen oil and arranging it’s delivery? Amazing they are too busy filming expert videos of FAKE beheadings as well with multiple camera angles and voice dubbing with green screen behind as well so where do they find the time to do all of this mass murdering?

          • Froi Vincenton

            Hahahahha!!! You are either a brain-dead leftist or a MUSLIM in disguise…

            “James Foley works for the CI…|

            So he works for the CIA and ISIS staged his beheading? LOLOLOL!!!

            Why not go to Syria and Iraq and prove us wrong. I would love to see a video of you being BEHEADED by Muzzies. LOL!

            A British was just beheaded. I’m gonna wait for your conspiracy story that this latest beheading was also staged. IDIOTS!

          • Billy Carlin

            You really are shit for brains. Only the brain dead like you fall for this shit. It is all a huge FALSE FLAG SCAM as an excuse to bomb and invade SYRIA because the people who are aware of what is going stopped the UK and US government from doing so last year – If they do get away with this then you will not be sitting there for much longer spewing your shit as this will be the start of WW3 and the end for humanity when the nukes start kicking off and all because shit for brains numpties like you cheer this shit on. Bye you are just showing how much of a THICKO you are or government paid troll whoring against your own family and humanity.

          • Froi Vincenton

            Go to Syria and Iraq and show us prima facie and real evidence that the beheading of the THREE (now THREE) westerners were staged, you moron! I’m beginning to think you are a Jihadist terrorist using the Internet and cheering what the conspiracy theory useful idiots post online.

          • Billy Carlin

            Of course there was THREE you THICKO! The first two were to enrage the brain dead thicko US masses into backing their CON against THEIR ISIS and this latest one and the next one is to do the same with the brain dead THICKO UK masses.

            I and many other people could have wrote this script as it is so obvious apart from THICKOS like you.

          • Froi Vincenton

            You keep repeating your stupid lies and claims. LOL! Go to Syria and Iraq and prove your conspiracy theories, you moron.

            Why did you not respond to my questions, Muslim moron? Who are these experts in UK and US you are talking about, Muslim moron?

            Also, is the continued genocide of Yazidis and Christians by your comrade ISIS also staged?

          • Froi Vincenton

            Tell me who are your experts in USA and UK about this issue, you moron. LOL! ISIS themselves proved repeatedly the beheading was real and they’re gonna behead more, you idiot.

            Yet what you idiot are saying here is: “No, don’t believe ISIS. Believe a moron like me.” LOL!

            So are you telling me ISIS also staged the genocide of Christians and Yazidis in Iraq?

          • Froi Vincenton

            “so what if Al Jazeera retracted it’s story it has not been retracted by the experts here in the UK and elsewhere…”

            HAHAHAHAHA! YOU ARE EITHER A MORON or MUSLIM TERRORIST IN DISGUISE.

            Who are these experts you are talking about, MORON? You’re not even qualified to write a one-liner joke LOL!

          • Froi Vincenton

            Here’s my message and challenge to you, M,USLIM MORON!

            Here are FIVE REASONS the blogger, this site and all the brain-damaged conspiracy theorists here are all stupid or imbecile:

            1.So, you’re telling us ISIS staged the beheading of terrorist
            sympathizer Foley and Sotloff to enrage USA. Apart from the beheading, they publicly announced via Twitter and interviews they’re determined toattack the United States and kill Americans. Watch VICE’S interviews and documentaries. Perhaps you’re gonna tell us/me VICE’s interviews with ISIS were also staged, YOU MORONS.

            But they don’t have to stage the beheading of the two journos to enrage America and the WORLD! Because of the second reason below…

            2. ISIS’s continued genocideof Yazidis, Christians and SHIA Muslims in Iraq. Perhaps you’re gonna tell me it was also staged and all the poor Yazidis, Christians and Shia Muslims who were either killed, trapped in the mountains or fled their
            homes were all ACTORS. Plus, I actually want you to confirm that you believe all ISIS terrorists are also actors.

            The genocide of thesepeople and the continued declaration of war by ISIS is good reason enough for USA, BRITAIN and RUSSIA to intervene.

            3. They did not only declare war on USA; they also declared war on Russia, Britain and the WEST. But let’s say you are all right in saying — since you are allbrain-damaged creatures– that ISIS is no threat to America, Russia and the West, what would you suggest other countries do? Just let ISIS massacre non-Muslims and Shia Muslims? Let ISIS have their own government and then after having their own government, let it create terror proxies like Iran does?

            4. You, brain-dead creatures, seem so upset that USA under stupid Obama SOMEHOW finally decided to attack ISIS. It seems you’re all so upset and worried that ISIS’s war crimes
            and genocide would be finally stopped. But don’t worry, brain-dead creatures, Obama is too dishonest and too pro-Islamism so he would never carry out an all-out war on his ISIS comrades. The bombings of ISIS’s territories were, it seems, all media stunt. Because it seems Obama is unwilling to help ISIS’s victims and will simply let ISIS have their own caliphate.

            5. You’re all too stupid to think people are more worried about the beheading of Foley and Sotloff. Well to me, Foley got what he deserved. Whether he was actually beheaded or not, I don’t thinkthat’s important to me. What’s more important is the continued war crimes by ISIS against Christians, Yazidis and non-Muslims in Iraq and even in Syria. So, stop fooling yourself. In fact Obama seemed not really outraged by the plight of minorities in Iraq.

            So again, you should be thankful that after all ISIS did Obama seems not willing to attack ISIS. Thus, stop worrying about ISIS possible defeat. You should be thankful ISIS is more determined to kill Yazidis and Christians.
            That’s what you want, right?

            So, I just hope that the stupid blogger and all the conspiracy theorists here will get KILLED OR BEHEADED sooner or later by Islamic terrorists rather than innocent people.

            Because I tell you, I’m from the Philippines. The Islamic separatists here (e.g., MILF, Abu Sayyaf and BIFF) just announced to the media they sent Jihadists in Syria and Iraq to join ISIS and the Syrian rebels.

            So, I know these terrorists are real, guys! And they say and claim they are all real, and they are determined to kill more. Yet you’re here saying: “No, they’re not real. They’re no threat to us.” That is why you are all terrorist sympathizers and I really wish that you be killed or beheaded instead of innocent people.

            Last year the MNLF terrorists killed Christians, used christians as human shields and caused the displacement of over 60,000 families in Zamboanga after its terror leader Nur Misuari went berserk. So I know their terror activities were not staged.

            But you, stupid, brain-damaged creatures living in the West that is not yet dominated by Muslims, can comfortably spread stupid disinformation and conspiracy theories that help and embolden the terrorists. Your role is to keep people from knowing the truth.

            ……………..

            So, my friendly suggestion to the brain-dead blogger and all his fanatic believers is toconvince us more that ISIS is no threat and that the beheading was staged–

            1. By going to Syria and Iraq.
            2. To interview ISIS
            3. In order to ask whether ISIS is actually not a threat
            4. To ask whether the beheading was staged or not
            5. That ISIS members are all actors (perhaps) and that they don’t actually mean harm to us.

            Prove us you’re right. You must have the MONEY and COURAGE to prove the world that your conspiracy theories are all right and correct!!!

            PROVE US YOU ARE CORRECT, YOU MORONS! Go to Iraq and Syria and DIE just like what brain-damaged James Foley did! Thank goodness that useful idiot is dead!

      • Froi Vincenton

        That proves my point you’re so disappointed that ISIS would no longer kill more Christians and Yazidi minority.

    • http://www.identityforum.org.uk Bain Dewitt

      An “existential” threat..? They have nukes now?

  • George Kingfish Stevens

    I just saw the alleged Sotloff beheading vid and it’s just as phony as the other one. Guy reads his lines like a cool calm actor. If you’re about to get murdered why would you do that? The guy would be yelling “God bless America!” or “I love you, mom!” or screaming and struggling or something. The terrorist actor has the same little toy knife. And they don’t show any beheading. I thought ISIS is supposed to glory in showing their most gory murder videos, so why so shy now? It’s as phony as Barry’s birth certificate.

    • Eileen Kuch

      Exactly, Kingfish. These staged videos is actually to dupe the low IQ, low information Amerikans into believing all this bs. I bet that if these videos had been shown to the Russian population (with Russian subtitles, btw), they would be laughing their heads off at the fake acting of the characters involved. Cheech and Chong, anyone?

      • Froi Vincenton

        If they staged the killing of one or two persons, then it follows you’re saying that they also staged the massacre of hundreds of thousands of Christians and Yazidis, you moron.

        I hope you get beheaded by Muslims you so love to defend, moron!!!

      • Linus

        I’m not a war-hungry republican, nor an extremist sympathizer. You both (Billy Carlin and Froi Vincenton) keep mentioning the word “facts” – but I’ve seen very few thus far.

        Sure, the ISIS videos are a bit suspicious, but the conclusions you jump to make little sense. Liberals and conservatives can’t agree on whether to let gays marry or legalize marijuana, you think they’d come together (democrats especially) to do this? We’re treehuggers, remember?

        You both have your own agendas, but guess what… I don’t. I don’t want our troops in Syria, but I also don’t want innocent people to be killed. I wish the US would stay out of it, but every time we try to, other countries look to us for help because they can’t keep their own shit together.

        Republicans and Democrats may dislike each other and never agree on anything, but we’re not killing each other in civil war. Even Ferguson looks like a good day in that area, it’s been that way long before Americans went there, and it’ll be that way long after we leave.

        I don’t like the way SOME Americans treat normal Muslim people living in America, but we’re not murdering them because they’re Muslim, either. I certainly believe the American government lies to us, but you’d be worse than naive to think governments in the middle east are completely honest to their people.

        If the beheadings were staged, chances are, they were staged by ISIS, not the CIA. If you have any real facts, by all means, share them. Just don’t think I’m stupid enough to fall for sketchy websites with terrible grammar that claim “fact” yet is little more than propaganda. I want to see ACTUAL FACTS, then I’ll form an opinion, not by jumping on some bandwagon.

  • Marsh

    This piece is spot on in most respects, although I would caution against implicating the CIA as the only group behind ISIS. They are involved but it is in the main a construction of the Saudi government in collaboration with other large oil capital. The most frustrating part is that due to the Kardashianisation of the American people, they are too blindly patriotic to accept the glaring fakeness. Money rules the world and the only way to change that is to change the political system with new parties and new leaders. But then again, the American people are far more concerned with chasing after the evil people who leaked naked pics of Jennifer Lawrence. How dare they do such a thing to a celebrity!

  • Froi Vincenton

    You should be glad to know that fanatic and Muslim terrorists who believe they have a divine duty to kill Christians, atheists and non-Muslims in the Philippines love this post and were desperately spreading it on Facebook and social media.

    If this piece of garbage shit was written by a non-Muslim infidel, he’s either suicidally stupid or just plain imbecile. Because if he’s an infidel or non-Muslim, he would be killed or beheaded by Muslims like they did to American national Martin Burnham in Mindanao, Philippines.

    So you should congratulate yourselves for attracting the attention of Muslim terrorists who have genocidal mission.

    Your hilarious conspiracy story was being circulated by this Muslim terrorist in this blog…

    http://antiasstheist.wordpress.com/2014/08/06/find-out-why-this-filipino-muslim-believes-abu-sayyaf-and-milf-are-justified-under-islam-to-kidnap-kill-and-behead-civilians/

  • Froi Vincenton

    Here are FIVE REASONS the blogger, this site and all the brain-damaged conspiracy theorists here are all stupid or imbecile:

    1. So, you’re telling us ISIS staged the beheading of terrorist sympathizer Foley and Sotloff to enrage USA. Apart from the beheading, they publicly announced via Twitter and interviews they’re determined to attack the United States and kill Americans. Watch VICE’S interviews and documentaries. Perhaps you’re gonna tell us/me VICE’s interviews with ISIS were also staged, YOU MORONS.

    But they don’t have to stage the beheading of the two journos to enrage America and the WORLD! Because of the second reason below…

    2. ISIS’s continued genocide of Yazidis, Christians and SHIA Muslims in Iraq. Perhaps you’re gonna tell me it was also staged and all the poor Yazidis, Christians and Shia Muslims who were either killed, trapped in the mountains or fled their homes were all ACTORS. Plus, I actually want you to confirm that you believe all ISIS terrorists are also actors.

    The genocide of these people and the continued declaration of war by ISIS is good reason enough for USA, BRITAIN and RUSSIA to intervene.

    3. They did not only declare war on USA; they also declared war on Russia, Britain and the WEST. But let’s say you are all right in saying — since you are all brain-damaged creatures– that ISIS is no threat to America, Russia and the West, what would you suggest other countries do? Just let ISIS massacre non-Muslims and Shia Muslims? Let ISIS have their own government and then after having their own government, let it create terror proxies like Iran does?

    4. You, brain-dead creatures, seem so upset that USA under stupid Obama SOMEHOW finally decided to attack ISIS. It seems you’re all so upset and worried that ISIS’s war crimes and genocide would be finally stopped. But don’t worry, brain-dead creatures, Obama is too dishonest and too pro-Islamism so he would never carry out an all-out war on his ISIS comrades. The bombings of ISIS’s territories were, it seems, all media stunt. Because it seems Obama is unwilling to help ISIS’s victims and will simply let ISIS have their own caliphate.

    5. You’re all too stupid to think people are more worried about the beheading of Foley and Sotloff. Well to me, Foley got what he deserved. Whether he was actually beheaded or not, I don’t think that’s important to me. What’s more important is the continued war crimes by ISIS against Christians, Yazidis and non-Muslims in Iraq and even in Syria. So, stop fooling yourself. In fact Obama seemed not really outraged by the plight of minorities in Iraq.

    So again, you should be thankful that after all ISIS did Obama seems not willing to attack ISIS. Thus, stop worrying about ISIS possible defeat. You should be thankful ISIS is more determined to kill Yazidis and Christians. That’s what you want, right?

    So, I just hope that the stupid blogger and all the conspiracy theorists here will get KILLED OR BEHEADED sooner or later by Islamic terrorists rather than innocent people.

    Because I tell you, I’m from the Philippines. The Islamic separatists here (e.g., MILF, Abu Sayyaf and BIFF) just announced to the media they sent Jihadists in Syria and Iraq to join ISIS and the Syrian rebels.

    So, I know these terrorists are real, guys! And they say and claim they are all real, and they are determined to kill more. Yet you’re here saying: “No, they’re not real. They’re no threat to us.” That is why you are all terrorist sympathizers and I really wish that you be killed or beheaded instead of innocent people.

    Last year the MNLF terrorists killed Christians, used christians as human shields and caused the displacement of over 60,000 families in Zamboanga after its terror leader Nur Misuari went berserk. So I know their terror activities were not staged.

    But you, stupid, brain-damaged creatures living in the West that is not yet dominated by Muslims, can comfortably spread stupid disinformation and conspiracy theories that help and embolden the terrorists. Your role is to keep people from knowing the truth.

    • Brandon

      Whether they’re fake or real, here’s what I’m gathering from everything you’ve said:

      You are filled with hate, you *cannot give your opinion respectfully and without slander, and you have murder on the mind considering you want people to go get beheaded. Inhumane. All of it. You sound like you should be joining ISIS.

      *I get that not every one does, but you could’ve chosen to be the bigger & better person. You didn’t. I’m singling you out because, forgive me for sounding/being childish, “you started it.” As far as I can see, everybody with the exception of St. Louis Wrestling, who also got the response he/she deserved because of his/her post, was respectful before you joined in. “Do unto others as you would have them do to you,” right? That’s gotta mean something to ya if you’re a Christian who’s pissed at Muslims for killing Christians. Now, since you sound like a Fox News viewer, then I suggest you brace yourself:

      http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/how-roger-ailes-built-the-fox-news-fear-factory-20110525

      ^ “Fear, in fact, is precisely what Ailes is selling: His network has relentlessly hyped phantom menaces like the planned ‘terror mosque’ near Ground Zero, inspiring Florida pastor Terry Jones to torch the Koran. Privately, Murdoch is as impressed by Ailes’ business savvy as he is dismissive of his extremist politics. ‘You know Roger is crazy,’ Murdoch recently told a colleague, shaking his head in disbelief. ‘He really believes
      that stuff.'”

      There is no ‘terror mosque’ at Ground Zero. It’s a museum. Fox News terms it that way just to spread fear and you’re about to have proof that they lie:

      http://www.salon.com/2014/10/24/why_conservatives_prefer_propaganda_to_reality_partner/

      ^ “The less charitable way is to say Pew discovered that conservatives
      are consuming a right-wing media full of lies and misinformation, whereas liberals are more interested in media that puts facts before
      ideology.”

      “Enter right-wing media, which has a nifty trick of convincing audiences it’s the other guys who are the liars, all while actually being much less trustworthy in reality. From conservative screaming about the “media elite” to Fox News’s old slogan “Fair and Balanced,” conservative media is rife with the message that everyone is out to get you, conservative viewer, and only in the warm blanket of right-wing propaganda will you be safe.”

      “The problem with this is watching Fox News actually makes you less informed than if you don’t watch any news at all. In a 2012 study, Fox News viewers rated the absolute lowest in ability to correctly answer questions on a quiz about recent news events. People who didn’t take in any news programs at all did better on the quizzes.”

      ^ “Wartime is an environment that breeds wicked forms of racism. This is
      because governments love to turn existing prejudices into hate in order
      to mobilize the masses….If we hate racism, we must also hate war since
      it is war that has bred all these malignant types of racism. In our
      time, we observe the same happening to those of the Islamic faith.
      Members of both parties are demonizing these people and encouraging an anti-Islamic feeling across the broad population. Christians are being
      told, as in George Orwell, that “we’ve always been at war with Islam,”
      that Islam is an inherently warlike religion, that “they” are taking
      over America with their mosques, clothing and law. This whole campaign
      has the earmarks of a new Cold War, and perhaps hot war, in which Islam replaces atheistic communism as the enemy of choice. What is striking about this form of racism is how little it has to do with reality. —
      What none of this mentions is that Islam, Christianity and Judaism lived
      in peace, sometimes in the same regions of Europe, for some 700 years
      between the eighth and fifteenth centuries” – Ron Paul (Liberty Defined)

      ^ “Remember the so-called ‘celebrating Palestinians’?? This article
      shows how deceiving the Zionist controlled media is and how complicit
      Western mainstream ‘reporters’ have been in the manipulation of American public opinion to get support for the bogus ‘war on terror’ in the Middle East.”

      “…and how complicit Western mainstream ‘reporters’ have been in the manipulation of American public opinion…”

      Fox News is a major culprit and it’s been proven they spread fear based on lies. If you can’t see that, then I don’t know what to tell ya.

      ^ While you’re reading that, others, watching videos and doing nothing
      but agreeing with anything that makes Islam look evil, please keep the
      following in mind:

      1) ISIS and Al-Qaeda were created and are armed, funded & trained by the U.S.

      2) Hamas was created by Israel and Israel is supported by the U.S.

      3) The F.B.I. has pushed Muslims to plot terrorist attacks.

      Americans are joining ISIS — are they a danger to the US? http://www.vox.com/2014/9/2/6096767/americans-isis-europeans

      ^ “About 100 Americans and well over a thousand Europeans have joined the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)”

      Americans and Europeans are joining ISIS ‘without’ converting to Islam and the Muslims who you fear (if you do) are ‘not’ killing them for not converting. Islam teaches them to do so, right? Well, I guess I just proved that wrong. If Islam is supposedly the source of all the evil in the world, then why are the U.S., British & Israeli governments, which consists of Christians & Zionists for the most part, responsible for almost all of it? You can call me an anti-Semite if you have to, but I don’t hate Jewish people; I hate Zionism! By the way, there are plenty of Jewish people who are against Zionism and what the Israeli government and IDF are responsible for.

      ^ You know what they say: “Money is the root of all evil.”

      Lastly, from the first Global Research link:

      “The 9 page, extensive report has since been vindicated many times over with revelations of US, NATO, and Persian Gulf complicity in raising armies of extremists within Libya and along Syria’s borders. ISIS itself, which is claimed to occupy a region stretching from northeastern Syria and across northern and western Iraq, has operated all along Turkey’s border with Syria, “coincidentally” where the US CIA has conducted years of “monitoring” and arming of “moderate” groups.

      In fact, the US admits it has armed, funded, and equipped “moderates” to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. In a March 2013 Telegraph article titled, “US and Europe in ‘major airlift of arms to Syrian rebels
      through Zagreb’,” it was reported that a single program included 3,000
      tons of weapons sent in 75 planeloads paid for by Saudi Arabia at the
      bidding of the United States. The New York Times in its article, “Arms
      Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, With C.I.A. Aid,” admits that the CIA
      assisted Arab governments and Turkey with military aid to terrorists
      fighting in Syria constituting hundreds of airlifts landing in both
      Jordan and Turkey.

      The vast scale of US, NATO, and Arab aid to terrorists fighting in Syria leaves no doubt that the conspiracy described by Hersh in 2007 was carried out in earnest, and that the reason Al Qaeda groups such as Al Nusra and ISIS displaced so-called “moderates,” was because such “moderates” never existed in any significant manner to begin with. While articles like the Daily Beast’s “America’s Allies Are Funding ISIS” now try to portray a divide between US and Persian Gulf foreign policy, from Hersh’s 2007 article and all throughout the past 3 years in Libya and Syria, the goal of raising an army in the name of Al Qaeda has been clearly shared and demonstrably pursued by both the US and its regional partners.”

      “…the goal of raising an army in the name of Al Qaeda has been clearly shared and demonstrably pursued by both the US and its regional partners.”

      “Vindicated” – Proof that not all Muslims are terrorists and, if/when they are, it is our countries’ fault! Meaning if your opinion is that ‘all’ Muslims
      are terrorists and Islam is inherently evil, then you’ve fallen for Western mainstream medias’ crap and if you don’t watch news whether it’s Fox or not, then what are your sources? Because none of them are reliable if they are right-wing conservative websites. It’s been proven that they lie!
