James Foley was not the only American to be captured by jihadists. James Foley went missing in 2012 when he was in Syria to cover the revolution. Before his execution, the GlobalPost (the outlet that he was writing for), asserted that Foley was captured, not by the jihadist rebels, but by the Syrian government. GlobalPost CEO and President Philip Balboni made this assertion, saying:
With a very high degree of confidence, we now believe that Jim was most likely abducted by a pro-regime militia group commonly referred to as the Shabiha and subsequently turned over to Syrian government forces. We have obtained multiple independent reports from very credible confidential sources who have both indirect and direct access that confirm our assessment that Jim is now being held by the Syrian government in a detention facility in the Damascus area.
Who were your sources? Or were you just being a sycophant for the jihadists while your colleague was on his way to get beheaded? There was no credible sources, because no one credible would ever say that someone was captured by the Syrian government while he was actually taken by jihadists. The GlobalPost, like the devil, was using the abduction of their colleague to attack the Syrian government while sacrificing whomever they can on the altar of tyranny.
It turns out that the same sort of baseless pretensions are being said about another American journalist, Austin Tice. He too went to Syria as a sympathizer for the jihadists and an opponent of the government, and he too was captured and executed by the same Islamic killers that he supported.
We have no video of Tice being executed, but we do have a video of him surrounded by jihadists and, quite heartbreakingly, crying to Jesus Christ:
Now, regardless of this video, there were people saying that the captors in the video were Syrian government agents, similar to how the GlobalPost CEO was affirming that the Assad regime was responsible for the capturing of Foley. In the year of his disappearance, U.S. State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland said:
You know, there’s a lot of reason for the Syrian government to duck responsibility… but we continue to believe that to the best of our knowledge we think he is in Syrian government custody
The Assad government denied this charge, and of course no one trusted the regime. There were even so-called “analysts” saying that the video of Tice was staged by the Syrian government. The New York Times rendered their assertions as such:
Several analysts said that the video appeared to be staged and that it lacked the customary form and polish of jihadist videos. The men hid their faces, and no group was identified claiming responsibility for Mr. Tice’s capture or the video, which was originally posted on YouTube by an unknown user instead of on a jihadist Web site, as militant groups prefer.
In the video, the call-and-response of “God is great” seems unpracticed and out of sync. The captors are dressed in freshly pressed Afghan dress never seen before among Syrian rebels. And it was unusual for Islamist militants to force Mr. Tice, a non-Muslim, to recite a Muslim prayer for a video.
But now with the video showing the slaughtering of Foley, it is quite obvious as to what really happened to Austin Tice.
Tice went missing in 2012, in Syria, the same date and the same country in which Foley went missing. Tice disappeared just days after his birthday, which he celebrated with jihadists, who were members of the FSA. The jihadists threw a pool party for him and treated him very much hospitality, a common thing MUslims do before killing their victims. Just as Cain projected a facade of peace before slaughter Abel, so did the Muslim jihadists treat him very well prior to murdering him. Tice’s last message on Twitter (and to his family), was:
Spent the day at an FSA pool party with music by @taylorswift13. They even brought me whiskey. Hands down, best birthday ever.
Days later, he disappeared, with the last visual of his existence being a video of him in the hands if jihadists. What happened to Tice? The same thing that happened to Foley.
It angers me greatly that the government and the leftist media is using the death of Americans as propaganda for their pro-jihadist agenda. These scheming news agents and politicians not go against humanity, but against God, with their lies and slanders.
