In 2012, James Foley, a freelance journalist for GlobalPost, Agence-France Presse, went missing in Syria and was presumed kidnapped. Today, he showed up in a video released by ISIS.
In the video posted Tuesday on YouTube, Foley is seen kneeling next to a man dressed in black. He reads a message, presumably scripted by his captors, that his “real killer” is America.
“I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope for freedom to see my family once again,” Foley can be heard saying in the video.
He is then shown being beheaded.
A colleague of Foley’s, Time‘s Steven Sotloff, also makes an appearance in the video, dressed in orange garb similar to Foley’s. The ISIS terrorists spared his life, for now, pending the American response.
