    Britain Close to Identifying Suspect in Journalist's Beheading

    I had been reading they've been working on this.
    There have been apparently about 500 British Muslims fighting for ISIS/etc, many more than in the British Armed forces.

    Britain Close to Identifying Suspect in Journalist's Beheading
    Ambassador to U.S. Says 'We Are Close' Via Voice Technology and Other Information

    WASHINGTON—Britain is close to identifying a suspect who is seen in an Islamic State video beheading a U.S. journalist who had been held captive by the group in Syria, Britain's ambassador to the U.S. said Sunday.

    Ambassador Peter Westmacott declined to confirm British news reports naming the suspect in the video but told CNN that "we are close" to doing so.

    He said the identification was made possible through the use of sophisticated voice identification technologies and other information. The suspect in the video has what appears to be a British accent.

    James Foley, the U.S. journalist who was beheaded in the grisly video released last week, is one of several Americans held by the group known as the Islamic State, or ISIS, in Syria, U.S. officials say.

    "Of course, the problem goes beyond one horrendous criminal," the ambassador said. "We've got more people than we would like. People think that maybe as many as 500 British subjects have gone to Syria and Iraq for this cause of Jihad."

    Outstanding. Hopefully his identification will lead to others in the command structure and their ultimate demise.

    Apprehending this subhuman is one thing. Convincing the British population that Islamist radicalism is an actual problem and that the beheading represents just the tiniest tip of the iceburg is quite another.

    If there is any good to come of this, it lies in the latter, as an increase in public awareness is the first step by way of solution to the problem.

    Heya Mbig. They also know that most of the Europeans and Americans fighting for these terrorists are with the group al Nusra. Also that the guy running the Invisible Sheiks Operations in Syria is Chechen.

    These terrorists also are using Social media.....to recruit. Both fighters and Women for their Fighters. Passing out their Propaganda and using Democtaric law for their Freedom of Speech.

    We do need to start pointing out.....how and what ways they will attempt to influence others. People should be informed what their association to these people means. As well as what it can cost them.

    Of course going forward now.....the Terrorists will now mask their voice when speaking or may just use some computer voice.

    Maybe it's time to fuel up a drone.

    Like the drone program is working.

    Let's see, 13v years of drone bombing on two fronts in Afghanistan and Pakistan and the most recent military report is another five to ten years left to fight.

    Meanwhile every kill by drone generates five new terrorists.

    I guess that's "success" in a land whose entire economy is based on feeding the military-industrial complex.

    What this proves is that both American and EU foreign policy is encouraging terrorism.

    I dislike the military-industrial complex probably as much as you, but when someone beheads an American citizen, I might be willing to make an exception.

    We could do nothing.....and we can wait until they bring it our way. Which eventually they will do. As our way of life.....is a threat to all that they believe in. Best to not let them grow strong and to a point where they are more of problem than they should have ever become.
