Steven Sotloff beheaded

3 Sep, 2014

isis-steven-sotloffA video appears to show the killing by ISIS of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff. The man identified as Sotloff addresses the camera:

I’m sure you know exactly who I am by now and why I am appearing. Obama, your foreign policy of intervention in Iraq was supposed to be for preservation of American lives and interests, so why is it that I am paying the price of your interference with my life?

A militant warns the U.S.:

Just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people.

The militant then appears to kill Sotloff by beheading him.

Sotloff was last seen alive at the end of a similar video which showed the execution by beheading of American journalist James Foley. He told Obama that his life was in the President’s hands. The most recent video ends with an apparent threat against the life of a man identified as David Cawthorne Haines, a British citizen.
