ISIS's next victim?

On Monday, ISIS released a gruesome video (which I have not seen and will not post) of the murder of journalist James Foley, who was captured in Syria in late 2012.

Now they're threatening to murder journalist Steven Sotloff whom they have held since 2013 (Hat Tip: Leah P).
Our prayers and thoughts go out to Steven Sotloff, who was revealed today as a captive of the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL) terrorist group.

After murdering journalist James Foley and posting a video of his beheading to Twitter, the same masked ISIS killer was seen standing next to an identically-dressed Sotloff, addressing President Barack Obama directly and threatening to kill Sotloff if the US continues to challenge the "Islamic Caliphate."

The Sotloff family, who lives in Miami, has been keeping Steven's kidnapping a secret on advice from trusted officials. With his name now public, it is unclear what his fate will be and whether the US will seek to rescue him or strike a deal with the Islamic State.

We have made the editorial decision not to share the gruesome video of Foley's killing but felt it was important to spread awareness of Sotloff's plight.
This is the result of the world perceiving a weak America. Thank you Hussein Obama.

Does anyone really believe that watching their own be murdered will awaken the mainstream media? Don't hold your breaths.
