ISIS executes Steven Sotloff

A video released by the terrorist group ISIS seemingly shows the beheading of the American hostage Steven Sotloff.  Sotloff, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen in Syria in August 2013 until he appeared in a video released online last month by the Islamic State group. That video showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley.

The last execution video showed a masked terrorist beheading US reporter James Foley, then parading Mr. Sotloff, warning he would meet the same fate unless US President Barack Obama ended air strikes against the group in Iraq.

In the latest video, before he is murdered Sotloff speaks to the camera:

I am Stephen Joel Sotloff, I’m sure you know exactly who I am by now, and why I am appearing before you. And now it is time for my message.

Obama, your foreign policy of intervention in Iraq was supposed to be for the preservation of American lives and interests. So why is it that I am having to pay the price of your interference with my life? Am I not an American citizen?
