A video released Saturday claimed that reporter Kenji Goto was executed after a Thursday deadline for Jordan to release prisoner Sajida al-Rishawi was not met. Although NBC News has not yet verified the video, it appears consistent with other ISIS hostage videos, according to analysts SITE Intelligence.

kenjiISIS had threatened to execute reporter Kenji Goto and Jordanian pilot 1st Lt. Mu’ath al-Kasaesbeh if al-Rishawi was not freed within 24 hours. She was on death row in Jordan after her explosives failed to detonate during a 2005 attack on a hotel in the capital of Amman.

Jordan demanded proof of life of the two captives, while Japan’s Deputy Foreign Minister Yasuhide Nakayama told reporters Saturday that the situation was “a stalemate.” (read more)

    We should have raised more hell when they beheaded Daniel Pearl.

    My condolences to the family.

    I’m glad Japan is furious. I wish our government would at least make a good show at being angry.

      Yes, they need to make a statement. Ten years on death row is too long anyway. She is a terrorist. We must destroy them or they will destroy us.

      I was going to say that the POtuS was going to show his resolute stance in the face of yet another non-Moslim terrorist by not letting the terrorists sway him from a round or two of golf before the Super Bowl. In solidarity he’ll serve rice cakes with the guacamole and 7-layer dip.
      “…America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them (Moslems) should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

    I wonder how long Jordan will wait before making good on their threat. They cannot back down from it now unless their pilot is returned. I would be quite surprised to discover he is alive.

    Notice the lack of Obama “Superbowl Food” photo ops on Twatter today. Maybe some savvy news organization can have a mock “post your version of Obama’s superbowl snacks” contest.
