Another US journalist beheaded by ISIS

The savages of the “Islamic State” have sent another message to the United States:

Dressed in an orange jumpsuit against the backdrop of an arid Syrian landscape, [Steven] Sotloff was threatened in that video with death unless the U.S. stopped airstrikes on the group in Iraq.

In the video distributed Tuesday and entitled “A Second Message to America,” Sotloff appears in a similar jumpsuit before he is beheaded by an Islamic State fighter.

As Bryan Preston of PJ Media points out, our leaders have once again been caught unaware. Maybe they’re still trying to figure out a strategy for dealing with medieval lunatics who are butchering Americans. If Obama and his team are having trouble doing that, let me offer a suggestion:

Hunt these swine down and kill every last one of them.

UPDATE: At the end of the video of Sotloff’s beheading, ISIS shows another captive, Briton David Cawthorne Haines. The implication is clear: unless the US stops its airstrikes, Mr. Haines will be slaughtered like James Foley and Mr. Sotloff.

    This administration was NOT caught unaware nor is it waiting for the Pentagon to formulate a menu of strategies or responses. The rise and dangers of ISIS have been part of the Presidential Daily Brief since this time a full year ago. The Pentagon has contingency plans at the ready for every potential “hot spot” on the planet.

    The problem is a feckless and ignorant coward in the WH who the lapdog media try to pass off as omniscient but does not even know the correct number of states in the US.

    Strange, isn’t it? These repulsive and media impactful savage acts are occurring in a geographic region popularly called the “Cradle of Civilization”?

    ….I read this morning that the latest ISIS murder victim (Sotloff) was not only an American, but also a Jew (holding dual citizenship in the U.S. and Israel). Looks like ISIS gets a two-fer. Unsurprisingly, nothing from our president except >sound of crickets<
