ISIS Releases SECOND VIDEO with British Hostage John Cantlie (Video)
John Cantlie is a British war photographer and correspondent who was kidnapped by British Islamic extremists while crossing into Syria on July 19, 2012, near Bab al Hawa.
As of 2014 Cantlie’s whereabouts are unknown. He has not appeared in print or on social media since late 2012 and the trial against one of his alleged captors collapsed in 2013 when he could not be summoned as a witness. His website Fastfeatures.com is a dead link.
ISIS released a second video from hostage reporter John Cantlie. In the video Cantlie warns the US is embarking on Gulf War III.
The Times of India reported:
The Islamic State militants have released a second video of British journalist John Cantlie in less than a week which shows him warning US-led coalition against carrying out military operations against his captors.
In the latest five-minute video, Cantlie warns that the United States and its allies are embarking on “Gulf War III”, adding “Not since Vietnam have we witnessed such a potential mess in the making”.
“Current estimates of 15,000 troops needed to fight the Islamic State are laughably low. The State has more mujahideen than this. And this is not some undisciplined outfit with a few Kalashnikovs,” Cantlie said in the video.
Dressed in orange against a backdrop showing cuttings from the ‘New York Times’, the 43-year-old freelance photojournalist introduces himself as “the British citizen abandoned by my government and long-term prisoner of the Islamic State”.
