BEIRUT (AP) -- An Internet video purports to show the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State group.
 
Sotloff, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen in Syrian in August 2013 until he appeared in a video released online last month by the Islamic State group that showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley.
 
Dressed in an orange jumpsuit against the backdrop of an arid Syrian landscape, 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.

I am a Veteran and so is my Son, He just returned from Afghanistan. The real truth is the fortune 500 that have their hand up Obama's a$$ pulling on him like a puppet. I'm not buying what the cheerleader's at CNN are selling! There is a larger sinister plot here, and the greedy wealthy have no problem spilling our Mens blood to achieve it! The complexity of our daily lives and the turmoil in the middle east is all part of the psychological warfare process. American Citizens are so overwhelmed they are ready to slam a rifle in little Johnny's hands and send him off to war! WE ARE NOW FINALLY CONDITIONED!

Sierra11. Until we free ourselves from foreign oil, we are there protecting our interests. That's the reality of it. If we were oil independent we could tell that whole region of the world to take a flying leap. BUT WE ARE NOT, because the radical libbies in the US refuse to allow us to tap our own oil and gas reserves. And we have plenty to go around. I would dearly like to never have a US son or daughter sent to that hell hole ever again, but that isn't likely with our current energy policy. AND, I am all for renewables which might have a real impact on our energy footprint IN 40 TO 50 YEARS! But they have no impact in the here and now. We need MORE drilling in Alaska, offshore, the Dakotas and the Keystone pipeline. NONE of which Obama supports. So there you are.

Why are we not bombing these morons back into the stone age? I know, they never left the stone age, but they need to be eliminated! These extremists cannot be reasoned or negotiated with. Send them to Allah with the greatest of haste! Actually the heat from a nuclear missile should give them a taste of eternity in hell.

Does anyone see a war being drummed up here? Obama's 'no strategy' is a strategy! What the hell is in Syria that is important enough for us to loose Son's (and now daughters) over? We are in the process of getting a thirteen year war finished and now the powers to be want to start another? B.S.!
