A growing number of experts in the forensic community believe the James Foley execution video was staged. They do still believe he was killed afterwards as depicted in the lingering headless imagery. Apparently if you watch the video more than once, outside of losing all faith in humanity and any possibility for peace on earth, you will notice there is not as much blood as might be expected. One expert sums it up:
“After enhancements, the knife can be seen to be drawn across the upper neck at least six times, with no blood evidence to the point the picture fades to black.”
Given the guy holding the knife is apparently a disenchanted Brit who ran off to join ISIS to get back at his school headmaster who made him heat meat before his pudding, I have no doubt things did not go as barbarically by the book as depicted in the video. While more and more of these Get Me My Virgins in Paradise walking religious totems are digitally savvy youngsters, I’m guessing they don’t have anything better than early version Photoshop out in the desert huts. I hope Spielberg can be convinced to direct a much cooler montage to the inevitable carpet bombing of these fuckers scabies ridden compound. I bet the blood spurts don’t need to be staged.
