The Al-Qaeda splinter group ISIS released a video posted Tuesday showing the beheading of a second American journalist, Steven Sotloff, and warning President Barack Obama that as long as U.S. airstrikes against the jihadists continue, "our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people".Sotloff, 31, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, vanished in Syria in August 2013 and was not seen again until he appeared in a video released online last month that showed Foley's beheading.In the video distributed Tuesday and titled "A Second Message to America," Sotloff appears in a similar jumpsuit before he is beheaded by an ISIS fighter. The SITE Intelligence Group, a U.S. terrorism watchdog, first reported about the video's existence. The fighter who beheads Sotloff in the video called it retribution for Washington's continued airstrikes against the group in Iraq.
