ISIS beheads American journalist, vows more murders

An American has purportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists.

A video appearing to show the horrific killing of photojournalist James Wright Foley and the gruesome aftermath was posted online Tuesday by the terror group that has been moving across Syria and Iraq.

CNN has watched the video, and chosen not to air it, believing it's too graphic and too disturbing.

The terrorists go on to threaten the life of another American if President Obama doesn't end the U.S. airstrikes in Iraq.
Foley went missing while covering the conflict in Syria back in 2012.

CNN's Nick Paton Walsh is in Iraq with the latest.

    Islamist muslims are terroritorial (land grabbers) and they will do anything, including beheading little children, hanging teenage girls on crosses..these people are worse than animals, they have been killing innocent lives for 1400 years and no signs of stopping..they are worse than the Nazi's, if America let's the Muslims get power in the United States, they will behead every American. Islamist want everyone to be like them, and if you don't comply, they will kill your innocents.

    Islamist want every American killed, they are already beheading little children, hanging teenage girls on crosses; Islamist Muslims are blood thirsty animals, who will stop at nothing, because they are terroritorial (land grabbers) they want everyone to be like them. They are worse than the Nazi's, they must be stopped.
