Jordanian fighter pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh was burned alive by his ISIS captors according to a newly released video from the terror group on Tuesday. The video has not been verified according to IntelCenter who routinely monitors extremists websites as well as videos that are released. This is the first time that a hostage has been burned alive. Previous hostages were beheaded or shot. The recording was produced by al- Furqan Media Foundation.
The U.S. intelligence community is working to confirm the authenticity of the video and once again called upon the terror group to release all captives being held by the Islamic extremists. President Obama called ISIS ideology “bankrupt” and said the video shows evidence of the group’s barbaric style and viciousness. Jordanian forces have confirmed the murder and promised “punishment and revenge.” Al-Kaseasbeh was captured by ISIS extremists last December when his plane crashed over Syria. He became the first foreign pilot to be captured since the U.S. led airstrikes on the militants last year. The video lasted 22 minutes and shows footage depicting Jordan’s participation in the U.S. led coalition against ISIS. The final minutes show the pilot in a cage with flammable powder on the ground around and under him. Read More at Examiner.com
