American hostages beaten, tortured by ISIS

New York Times reporter Rukmini Callimachi talks to Brooke Baldwin about her latest report on ISIS. Her piece in the Times documents beatings, torture and agonizing uncertainty suffered by 23 ISIS hostages. Death scenes in the desert, as chilling as they are, represent the culmination of months of brutality.

    Let's be rational about this.
    The latest beheading was justified by the ISIS as payback to England
    for colluding with the USA to destroy ISIS.
    Seriously, what's the logic behind it? "I'm going to kill a white dude to further
    incite other white dudes to come here and kill me."
    Even for a radical muslim, that makes absolutely no sense at all,
    if the goal is to PREVENT western nations from attacking.
    It seems, as if ISIS wants the west to invade (again) and wage war on their soil.
    Well, why would ISIS want that? It is not beneficial for muslim locale,
    however it is very beneficial to western oil corporations.
    So, the members of ISIS are actually western agents, posing as radical muslims,
    to give western countries a pretext to invade and wage war in the Middle-East.
    Therefore, we should ignore all beheadings by ISIS and let them go,
    to prevent us from playing ourselves straight into the hands of the oil corporations.

    Do not discount the possibility of Baathist money hiring private contractors on foreign soil. The death and destruction that the baathists have experienced from the liberation of Iraq was an atrocity all by itself. But when you match that with hidden Saddam billions, today's ISIS may in fact, be the formulated response. The extent of the games being played in internet indoctrination has created short term, expert level production teams, that quickly find their skills out of vogue. Political change resulted in a huge glut of internet experts, that seem to have now found a home, with political Islamist funding. After all, if you do not reside in a Western country, well then, what seditious activity ?

    I'm sure that CNN and their mean spirited hateful Carol Costello will find this really funny. Right, Carol?
    Oh, but maybe these were Liberal kids, not like Conservative Bristol Palin. Why haven't you apologized to that family , yet. CNN why haven't you fired that Hateful woman who could revel in a young girl being assaulted? You disgust me!
