President Barack Obama said Wednesday that the "the entire world is appalled" by the murder of U.S. journalist James Foley.
A video surfaced Tuesday showing a man beheading Foley, who disappeared on November 22, 2012, in northwest Syria, near the border with Turkey. The militant group seeking an Islamic caliphate stretching from Iraq into Syria have claimed credit and U.S. intelligence said Wednesday that the video is real.
CNN is not showing the video.
The video shows an executioner and features an English speaker with an accent that sounds British. The footage shows another U.S. journalist believed to be Steven Sotloff, who was kidnapped at the Syria-Turkey border in 2013. Sotloff's life, the executioner says, depends on what Obama does next.
Obama spoke briefly in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, saying that Foley's life stands in stark contrast to that of his killers. He slammed ISIS, saying the militants speak for no religion and that no faith teaches others to massacre innocents as ISIS does.
"People like this ultimately fail" because the future is won by those who build and not destroy, Obama said.
