This Just In: U.S. Intelligence Confirms James Foley Beheading Video Legit; Australia Outraged; President Obama Says He Has a Conscience

beheadingvideo_20140820_124450President Obama’s statement a few minutes ago, after stating that the event “shocks the conscience” via Fox News:

“The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people,” Obama said, speaking from Martha’s Vineyard. “We will be vigilant and we will be relentless.” Right after this next round of golf.*

*Last part added by the Gruntington Post for clarification.

In other news, much, much earlier, the Daily Telegraph quoted Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott with this statement about the execution in Iraq:

“It’s absolutely sickening, absolutely despicable and it’s a sign that there can be no compromise whatsoever with the murderous terrorists of the ISIL movement. This is evil, this is as near pure evil as we are ever likely to see.”

    Evil is a reality that most people just cannot fathom it seems.

    Warning: Video of beheading. I did not watch but believe certain people should. I don’t need convincing. Pictures are more than good enough for me.

    Foley was liberal who believes that Islam is a peace loving religion. Frontpagemag had this to say regarding Foley:

    “James Foley was one of a new breed of activists calling themselves journalists. He didn’t travel to report on a story, but to promote an agenda. And the agenda was obvious from his Twitter feed.

    “Any human life lost is tragic, but a moral individual would have much more empathy for the Syrian Christians who suffered at the hands of Foley’s favorite Jihadists than one of their pet propagandists. Foley came to Syria to support the Sunni Islamist rebels against the Syrian government. He cheered on the Sunni Muslim terrorists fighting to ethnically cleanse the Christians of Aleppo. In the conflict between Israel and Hamas, his tweets and retweets were chock full of pro-terrorist propaganda. But Foley ran afoul of at least some of the Sunni Jihadists in Syria. His twitter feed was filled with references to the FSA. And the FSA was going to be eclipsed by the Al Qaeda affiliates. And that was where he ended up. When Austin Tice, an actual freelance journalist was kidnapped by Jihadists, Foley ridiculed the idea that Jihadists had kidnapped him. Surely Syrian Jihadists wouldn’t do that sort of thing. Except they did. When Newsweek’s Muslim Rage cover story came out, Foley mocked it too. Raging Muslims. How silly and Islamophobic. Foley was fanatically anti-Israel and was even willing to echo Iranian propaganda.”

    This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one:
    Obama Fundraises One Hour Before He Speaks About Beheading Of American Journalist…
    Note the time on the email, 11:41 a.m., Obama is speaking about the horrific beheading of James Foley at 12:45 p.m.

    From: Barack Obama
    Subject: Thank you, Drew
    Date: August 20, 2014 11:41:58 AM EDT

    Drew –

    Nothing has ever been more important than fighting for folks like you. You are my priority.

    And right now, a focus of that fight has to be getting people who really care about making things better for you elected. The upcoming elections could determine whether or not we have a Congress who will work with me to help you.

    That’s why it’s so important I spend some time helping Democrats campaign and win. I can only tackle the issues that matter to you with some help. Will you help me out, Drew?

    Pretty concerned about Americans being beheaded,isn’t he?

  6. Pistol Pete says:

    Looks like grunt is more than a little prescient:


  7. But there are always idiots out there defending beheadings as the proper response to western “interference.” By “interference” they mean “helping to keep Israel from being annihilated.” Read tweets from bottom up. Love Dave’s joke about those troublesome Knights of Columbus carrying swords.

  8. You know what Barack DOES feel strongly about? You guessed it. And he’s not ‘technically’ lying, because the Jews and nonbelievers the Koran talks about are not considered ‘innocents.’ Right, Barry?

    • Aussie says:

      I see a lie right in that statement: “Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim”. No. They are not overwhelmingly Muslim. The Yazidi are not Muslim and neither are the Chaldean Christians who had to flee Mosul. I am not sure about the Peshmerga – the are probably a mixture of Muslim and Christian.

      There are different Muslim sects and yes there are Shia Muslims who have been executed by ISIL in Iraq but those Shia Muslims are soldiers and other officials. They are not the civilians who had the letter N drawn on their houses.

      Now the same is true in regard to Syria the victims are made up of Shia as well as Christians. The difference is that many who lost their lives have been soldiers, but the remainder have been slaughtered because they refuse to accept the authority that ISIL attempts to impose upon them.

      That clueless idiot in the White House needs to be removed… pronto.

      • Agreed. We know the total death toll is a mixture, but I fail to see how their intelligence really shows “overwhelming” numbers of muslims. It’s possible; it just doesn’t jive with published reports.

        • Aussie says:

          I agree. However, there are pockets where it is Muslims who have been killed. IS kills Shia. ISIL kills those in opposition to them. Both kill Christians and Yazidid. Then there are the Kurds who have been killed… and the Syrian Kurds who did in fact rescue some of the Yazidi.
