Missing American Journalist James Foley Reportedly Beheaded in Iraq

The situation in Iraq continues to deteriorate and now an absolutely gruesome message has been sent to Americans to stay out. That message purportedly took the life of freelance journalist James Wright Foley, whom ISIS fanaticists have said they beheaded.

The militants uploaded video of the journalist, who wrote for the Global Post, being beheaded. The beheading was apparently a message for America to stop meddling in Middle Eastern affairs.

The murder brings back horrific memories of the murder of Daniel Pearl, murdered in 2002 by Al-Qaeda. It seems the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Foley went missing in Syria in 2012; he had been missing for 635 days. He is the oldest of five children. So far, his website, made by his family, has not updated with this terrible, despicable news.

One militant reportedly uploaded photos of the cowardly, barbaric act on Twitter, which ISIS has taken a real liking to, despite Twitter trying to crack down on their tweets.

Condolences are with Foley's family and friends.
