A video released Tuesday by the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) shows the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff, the U.S. government determined early Wednesday, marking the second time ISIS has killed an American journalist in as many weeks. The video was first obtained and released by the SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks the online activities of terrorist groups, and was determined to be authentic by the U.S. intelligence community according to a statement from National Security Council spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. The video, which TIME is not publishing, is similar to the video released last month of an ISIS militant killing American journalist James Foley. It depicts Sotloff, clearly under duress, criticizing American foreign policy before a warning from his masked killer and a threat to kill another foreign journalist.

    Obama clearly states that more than 40 nations have offered to join the coalition against the militants in Iraq and Syria. Im afraid ISIS' forces are something for the President of United States to ask the world to join this effort

    They should go to war with the ISIS but they should also protect the citizens. I think it'll backfire to the innocent people because these terrorists target innocents.
