Experts: James Foley Beheading Video Likely Fake posted 08/25/2014, 8:28 AM (Infowars)
[Category: Cover-Up/Deceptions]
Confirming Infowars’ analysis on Thursday, British forensic experts have concluded that the ISIS beheading video involving James Foley was in all likelihood staged using “camera trickery and slick post-production techniques.”

An international forensic science company which does work for police forces across Britain found that, “James Foley's execution may have been staged, with the actual murder taking place off-camera,” 
In all seriousness, I watched the video due to this report and it's true no blood comes out of his neck despite the guy sawing at it for 3 or so seconds, at which point they cut away, then show some gruesome photo of him supposedly beheaded. If these are the sadistic terrorists they claim to be, why wouldn't they show the execution like all the Mexican drug cartels do? Anything used by the state/media to generate war-hype is to be assumed propaganda until conclusively proven otherwise. - Chris, InfoLib
