President Barack Obama said Wednesday that the United States will not be intimidated by ISIS militants after the beheading of a second American journalist and will build a coalition to "degrade and destroy" the group.Obama's comments came after he said the United States had verified the authenticity of a video released Tuesday showing the beheading of freelance reporter Steven Sotloff, two weeks after journalist James Foley was similarly killed.Obama responded that he will continue to fight the militant threat and the "barbaric and ultimately empty vision" it represents.Sotloff, a 31-year-old Miami-area native who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, vanished a year ago in Syria and was not seen again until he appeared in the video that showed Foley's beheading.
