Investigators believe that the masked killer known as "Jihadi John," who fronted ISIS beheading videos, is a British man named Mohammad Emwazi, two U.S. government sources said Thursday.Emwazi, who used the videos to threaten the West and taunt leaders such as President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron, was believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined ISIS.Since a video surfaced in August 2014 showing a masked man raging against the United States before apparently beheading U.S. citizen James Foley off camera, "Jihadi John" has been one of the world's most hunted men.Security officials had avoided identifying Emwazi, fearing that to do so would make him more difficult to catch.Cage, which campaigns for those detained on terrorism charges, said Emwazi had got in touch with Cage saying he had been harassed by British security services after trying to take a trip back to Kuwait in 2010 where he was going to get married and had a job waiting.
