UPDATE: The Times of Israel reports Steven had dual citizenship: American/Israeli. No wonder Rita Katz feels entitled to sell the video.
UPDATE: The authorities have reviewed the video and judged it to be “authentic”. There you have it.
UPDATE: As it just so happens, Obama had ordered another 350 troops into Iraq the same day this video came out. And, “American Special Forces commandos are on the ground fighting in northern Iraq“. So much for them just being advisers or defending the embassy.
UPDATE: Thanks to Kenny’s Sideshow, I have a link to the newest staged beheading video. They “fixed” the problem of the no blood coming from the neck of the “victim” by simply switching to the second camera a little further away and to the right of the action. In short, they “zoomed out” but you can still see no blood coming from Steven’s neck while the “terrorist” saws away (they also took out the sound effects since some analysts said it sounded fake). Same fade to black and same quick flash over the body at the end with what I think is a stage prop head sitting on a body. Conclusion? They “fixed” problems which leads me further to believe it’s FAKE AS HELL (real terrorists wouldn’t worry about fixing believability issues. They’d just cut his head off)
UPDATE: Apparently it’s as bad as I thought. They are already pushing the “don’t watch the video” meme. Check out the Tweet from RabbiShaul and others already making the rounds at the end of this article.. yes, it’s a rabbi.
ISIS™ has struck again.
It has become widely understood that the video of James Foley being beheaded was a fake. For a number of reasons, even the MSM was starting to admit it looked “staged” as they tried to make up excuses for why the “most evil terrorist group in history” would fake a murder.
They tried a number of ways to keep the public from viewing the flawed hearts and minds infomercial. But they failed and the James Foley rallying cry for more bombs in Iraq and Syria were never heard.

- Why we shouldn’t share – or view – the video of James Foley’s murder
- Don’t Watch ISIS Execute U.S. Journalist James Foley.
- James Foley murder video: watch it and you risk terror charges
- #ISISmediablackout: UK celebs urge against sharing James Foley video online
What is at stake here is Obama’s credibility regarding his renewed aggression in Iraq and potentially (but not a certainty) his military intervention in Syria.
Without the James Foley psyop and the other failed ISIS™ propaganda campaigns generating any traction (40,000 Christians trapped on a mountain: ISIS™ Wants Your Women: They Took the Mosul Dam!: ISIS™ Beheading Children for No Apparent Reason) there was a real threat that Obama’s shrinking fan-base wouldn’t get behind another bombing campaign in Iraq on behalf of the businesses and banks that have been mopping up the profits in that country since George W. Bush lied us into invading it back in 2003.
Suddenly, there is a new fake beheading video but this one is a bit more obvious than the last. Especially when you consider where it came from and who is selling it.
“American journalist Steven Joel Sotloff has been beheaded by ISIS, according to a nearly three-minute video that purportedly shows his death. The SITE intelligence group said Tuesday afternoon that Islamic State, the militant group formerly known as ISIS, released the video, but it’s unclear when Sotloff was killed.” IBT
The video is for sale, put up by a racist Jewish Israeli-firster by the name of Rita Katz and her Muslim-hating war-mongering “intelligence” website, SITE. You can’t go to her site and view the video which she claims they got from because you have to pay money for her services. She openly admits she hates Muslims, but apparently she likes money more.
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has beheaded Steven J. Sotloff, the second American executed by the Islamic militant group, and posted a video of it on the Internet, the SITE Intelligence Group, a research organization that tracks jihadist web postings, said Tuesday. NYT
–Jewish Rita Katz, a woman with a long history of hatred of Muslim people, has another “scary Muslim” recording (for people with a working knowledge of the fraudulent Global War on Terror, that should be enough right there to send the bovine excrement meter off the charts) and she is literally selling it to the media (subscription to her “intelligence service” costs media outlets $2,500 a year) and the American people through her for profit organization called the SITE “Intelligence” Group. The recording is supposedly of a “scary Muslim” offering up a bounty on Jewish U.S. Ambassador to Yemen Gerald Feierstein. YBR (wait a minute! I wrote that back in Dec. of 2012! They stole my work, the bastards! lol)
I tried to go to her site but was unable to because you have to have a subscription. Ergo, Rita Katz is indeed SELLING the video.
The video itself I cannot comment on since I have yet to see it. However, I can tell you, a still from it published by the New York Times looks as fake as the Foley one and in fact, the British MI6 agent playing the role of “evil terrorist” is holding the same fake stage knife he used to pretend to cut James Foley.
Rita Katz has long history of rabid racism toward Muslims plus, she has been on the government payroll for an equally long time. She’s basically the Hatred Welfare Queen of the Post 9/11 Era.
A reader of this website left a great comment detailing her history. It would be good to read the whole thing but here are a few highlights:
Remember that last faked Bin Laden tape with the dyed beard? The one where Bin Laden’s image moves for only 3 1/2 minutes, but stays frozen the rest of the time while his “remarks” continue? Rita intended that little fake job to coincide with the sixth anniversary of 9-11. On 7 Sept 07 at 10:00 am, she called White House counsel Fred F. Fielding and told him she had a new Osama Bin Laden tape. Rita also called Joel Bagnal, deputy assistant to the president for homeland security, and sent both men an e-mail with a link to a place on S.I.T.E. where the tape could be seen” Revolution
Thanks to Yellow Brick Road blog stealing my content without giving me credit, we have a nice image to remember Rita Katz’ most “groundbreaking” exclusive thus far to date: Yes folks, the Grecian Formula bin Laden video was brought to you, for a profit, by the same folks releasing this latest “bomb Iraq” staged “beheading” propaganda.
YBR failed to take the best line from me though:
Basically, everything she does is a damn lie designed to make people hate Muslims as much as she does and to put large sums of tax-payers money in her greedy little pockets. ME!
Rita also promoted a story back then about the evil-doers plotting to abduct a Jewish ambassador. That story went everywhere but ended up being total bunk like all her other war-mongering stories.
I hope to see the newest installment of the ISIS™ Crisis Beheading Saga very soon. I wonder if they upped the production value on this one and opted for the stage knife that squirts stage blood? I wonder if they used the same fake head (notice they both have the same haircut? hmmmm?)
