The National Security Council has made a statement regarding the video released yesterday claiming to show the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley.

"The U.S. Intelligence Community has analyzed the recently released video showing U.S. citizens James Foley and Steven Sotloff. We have reached the judgment that this video is authentic. We will continue to provide updates as they are available."

NewsRadio KFBK has chosen not to post or link out the video of Foley's killing, but in the video, entitled "A Message to #America (from the #IslamicState)" terrorists force Foley to read a letter urging Americans to rise up against his "real killer, the U.S. government." Foley also says in the video that the U.S. airstrikes against ISIS "hammered the final nail into [his] coffin."

Foley was working in Syria for the Boston-based news Web site Global­Post when he disappeared in November 2012.
