Beheaded: American Journalist James Foley Beheaded by ISIS

Editor’s Note: American journalist James Foley was executed in cold blood by ISIS on camera. Prayers go out to his friends and family.

A gruesome video recently posted online reportedly shows the beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was kidnapped while covering the Syrian conflict in 2012.

The video shows a man who appears to be Foley, clad in orange and kneeling beside his apparent executioner. Foley can be seen giving a statement condemning U.S. action in Iraq.

“For what will happen to me is only a result of their complacency and criminality,” Foley says in the video which was posted by ISIS. “I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope of freedom of seeing my family once again, but that ship has sailed. I guess all in all, I wish I wasn’t American.”
