ISIS Tortured Foley Because His Brother Is In US Military

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Revealed, James Foley was an ISIS ‘whipping boy’

By Martin Gould and Martin Robinson | August 2014

James Foley was singled out for the harshest treatment by his ISIS captors after they found pictures of his brother who serves in the U.S. Air Force on his laptop computer, fellow prisoners said on Thursday.

He was regularly the victim of mock executions including once when he was ‘crucified against a wall,’ said French journalist Didier Francois.

Thankfully, they didn’t grab the front of his shirt or sprinkle some water up his nose or put women’s panties on his head. That would be torture. Speaking of which, where are all the human rights groups? Why haven’t we heard from them about ISIS? What has the UN done about ISIS?

Francois, 53, told Europe 1 Radio that the captors gave Foley rougher treatment from the rest of them because they discovered a picture of John Foley — the hostage’s 35-year-old officer brother — on his computer…

Foley’s brother was working at the Air Force base in Grand Forks, North Dakota as a logistics officer during most of James’s captivity. However, he was transferred to a post in Europe just three weeks before his brother’s execution, the Air Force confirmed to MailOnline.

A third brother, Mark, is also in the military, but it was the captors’ knowledge of John that led to James Foley’s tough treatment.

The ISIS thugs made James, 40, read a speech immediately before he was executed in which he laid the blame for his death on recent U.S. bombings in Iraq and singled out his brother.

‘Think about what you are doing. Think about the lives you destroy, including those of your own family,’ Foley was made to say. ‘I call on you, John. Think about who made the decision to bomb Iraq recently and kill those people, whoever they may have been.

‘Think, John. Who did they really kill? And did they think about me, you and our family when they made that decision?” he asked.

‘I died that day, John, when your colleagues dropped that bomb on those people, they signed my death certificate. I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope of freedom and seeing my family once again, but that ship has sailed. I guess all in all, I wish I wasn’t American.’ …

It’s odd, but that ‘confession’ could have been written by any liberal Democrat. What does that tell you?
