Foley addresses the camera before he dies and labels the US government his real killers as a man in black robes armed with a gun stands over him.

The journalist who has been missing for almost two years then leaves a haunting message for his brother, John, who is in the US Airforce.

‘I died that day, John, when your colleagues dropped that bomb on these people. They signed my death certificate’

 

ISIS, which has claimed control of most of northern Iraq and parts of Syria is threatening to kill Time journalist Joel Sotloff next unless President Obama ceases attacks on the terror group.

Soltoff has been missing since the middle of 2013 and last tweeted on August 3rd, 2013.

According to his Twitter account he was in Libya at the time of his disappearance.

Foley’s family including parents John and Diane, of Rochester, New Hampshire, pictured left, have publicly appealed for their son’s release. Foley was previously held captive by pro-Gaddafi forces in Libya.

Terror: Photojournalist James Wright Foley spoke before his beheading to say I call on my friends, family members and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government.

Terror: Photojournalist James Wright Foley spoke before his beheading to say ''I call on my friends, family members and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government.'

The video opens with a black robe-clad figure standing over a kneeling Foley.

The member of the Islamic State claims that President Obama's authorization of air strikes against the terror group places the US 'upon a slippery slope towards a new war front against Muslims.'

'Any attempt by you, Obama, to deny Muslims liberty & safety under the Islamic caliphate, will result in the bloodshed of your people,' the ISIS adds.

Foley speaks in the video and says 'I call on my friends, family members and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government.'

'I GUESS I WISH I WASN'T AMERICAN': PHOTOJOURNALIST JAMES WRIGHT FOLEY'S FINAL WORDS TO CAMERA BEFORE HIS DEATH

'I call on my friends family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the US government. For what will happen to me is only a result of their complacency and criminality.

'My message to my beloved parents: save me some dignity and don’t accept any (unclear, possibly says media) compensation for my death, from the same people who effectively hit the last nail in my coffin with a recent aerial campaign in Iraq.

'I call on my brother John, who is member of the US Airforce, think about what you are doing, think about lives you destroy including those of your own family.

'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? Did they think about me, you our family when they made that decision?

'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 see my family once again, but that ship has sailed. I guess all in all, I wish I wasn’t American.'

Awful.  Just fckng awful. 

I guess ISIS was mad that Ferguson was getting more attention.   This is their way of taking over the news cycle.

Poor man.  I'm usually not so pressed about another white person dying but that was just horrible.

The amazing thing is that they've had him since 2012 but ISIS is relatively "new".

Terrible! I've been wondering historically, has any other president had to deal with as many international and national crisis all at the same time as much as Obama has?
