ISIL Posts Video of Beheading Second US Reporter

American journalist Steven Sotloff

Another video was released by sites believed to be connected to the ISIL showing another American being beheaded by a masked ISIL Terrorist.

However, The White House said that it had yet to authenticate the footage, which SITE said showed 31-year-old freelance writer Steven Sotloff on his knees beside an IS fighter with a knife.

“If the video is genuine, we are sickened by this brutal act,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said of the footage released by the militants, in which 31-year-old freelance writer Steven Sotloff appears to have been killed.

In addition,ISIL militants also threatened to kill a British hostage.

And according to NPR :
U.S. officials say the video showing the beheading of a second U.S. journalist by militants of the Islamic State is authentic. “The U.S. Intelligence Community has analyzed the recently released video showing U.S. citizen Steven Sotloff and has reached the judgment that it is authentic,” National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said in a statement Wednesday.

And according to The New York Times reports that in the video released today, Sotloff says he is “paying the price” for the Obama administration’s airstrikes in Iraq.
